Ex-Raven retires to give brother a kidney

Ma'ake Kemoeatu gave up playing football in the NFL to give his brother, Chris, a special gift

Chris Kemoeatu, left, and his brother Ma'ake laugh during a news conference at the University of Maryland Medical Center, Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014, in Baltimore. Chris Kemoeatu's football career was cut short after seven seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers when he learned he'd need a kidney transplant. That's when his older brother, a 99-percent kidney match and a former nose tackle for the Baltimore Ravens, stepped in, and left the Ravens in 2012.
