Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson will undergo kidney transplant surgery on Wednesday.

“I’ve had 31 years to think about this, so, there is no nervousness, not the least bit of fear,” Johnson said.

The donor is Johnson’s 25-year-old son, Daniel. Johnson plans to spend the evening with his son before their procedures.
