PHOTO: As a longtime city of Birmingham firefighter and now chief of the City of Birmingham Fire & Rescue Service (BFRS), Cory D. Moon is used to saving lives. But one life that he’s saved is special to his family — his brother Rodney’s, he said. The selfless act didn’t come on a call into a city neighborhood, it came at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Hospital, where Cory donated a kidney to his older brother 22 years ago. “My brother was diagnosed with kidney disease [while he was attending the University of Alabama], and his situation got worse over the years,” Cory, 45, told The Birmingham Times. “He was getting ready to start dialysis right before we found out we were a match.”
