BERGEN COUNTY - A Bergen County man, married after reuniting with his high school crush, has learned his new wife can save his life.

Alan and Evelyn Sanchez attended high school together in Passaic County in the late 80s and 25 years later, reunited via social media. They were married late last year.

Six months ago, Alan found out he needed a liver transplant and no one in his family was a match. Evelyn, who has the same blood type as her husband, then came to his rescue. Next month, the couple will undergo surgery and Evelyn will give Alan two-thirds of her liver.
