WOMAN DONATES KIDNEY TO SAVE EX-HUSBAND'S LIFE
Just because you divorced your spouse doesn't mean you can't still be cordial to them, speak to them and, in the case of Mary Zeigler, donate an organ to them.
Maryand her ex-husband, Bill Henrichs, were married for 24 years before calling it quits 20 years ago, but worked hard to remain friends and keep things amicable for the sake of their kids.
Bill, who eventually remarried, found out last year that he needed a kidney transplant and his health was quickly declining.
Dozens of potential donors got tested, but none were a match. That's when Mary stepped up and got tested. It turned out she was a perfect match and immediately offered to save her ex-husband's life.
Mary says, "For me, it wasn’t even a decision. It was kinda like him calling up and saying, ‘Can you come over and help us rake leaves?’ That’s how I think of it.”
The transplant took place in October and was a complete success. (People)
