Acia Williams gave the gift of life for Chet Bennett, now Bennett is returning the favor to one of his employees.

Bennett was in need of a kidney transplant after being on dialysis for over a year. Willams found out she was a match and gave her kidney to the man who owned the hair salon in which she managed last April, WJLA reported.

Bennett actually owns a beauty college and several salons.

He had a surprise for Williams, WRC reported.

This week, Willams and Bennett cut the ribbon on a new salon in Washington, D.C., “A new Image by Acia”, WRC reported.


Bennett gave Williams the business, fulfilling a dream of hers, as a thank you for saving his life, WJLA reported.
