(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Alexis Weidmaier is giving her young son something money can't buy.

Next month, Alexis will donate her kidney to her 2-year-old son Rowan, who is in need of a transplant due to kidney failure.

Alexis was nominated by her co-worker for KQ2's Pay it Forward award and recently surprised her with $500 cash.

"I love how Alexis is willing to give anything to anyone," co-worker Courtney Burton said. "She will give you the last dollar if she had it. I love how she is a great mom to her children."

Highs will be in the mid 60s on Saturday and another disturbance will give us a chance for a few sprinkles across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri on Sunday. We are looking at a windy and warm weekend with temperatures will gradually climb back into the mid 60s by the end of the weekend.
