SAN DIEGO — Jeff Monis and Ivan Sablan turned out to be the perfect match. Monis is a San Diego Police dispatcher, Sablan is a San Diego Police officer, and both have an O-Positive blood type.

“We worked together, but we didn’t even know each other, and he expressed that he wanted to offer me his kidney,” said Monis.

As of Saturday, Monis had been living about seven weeks with Sablan’s kidney — which explains why the two have become as close as family.
