(Scroll down for video) A Hooters waitress served more than food and drinks to her customer as she gave him her kidney.

Mariana Villarreal, who works at Hooters in Roswell, Georgia, is a generous woman.

When she heard that Don Thomas, who is a frequent patron of Hooters lost both kidneys to cancer, she offered to donate one of her own.

Villarreal, who recently began working at Hooters, did not know Thomas. However, his story touched her because she recently lost her grandmother to kidney failure.

Villarreal said that she was unable to do anything to help her grandmother and therefore, she jumped for the opportunity to help another person have a better life.

Thomas and Villarreal underwent surgery on Friday. Doctors said it was a great success and they are recovering well.
