Turaga is donating a kidney to her husband, Bhargav, starting at 1:30 p.m., and St. Joe’s is live streaming the operation, with doctors taking your questions from inside and outside the operating room.

“I decided, and I offered,” Turaga told CBC News in an interview this week. “But it’s a mutual decision and support.

“I just want him to be healthy.”
