Dispatcher donates life-saving kidney to colleague

The 35-year-old mom was on a long waiting list, until a longtime co-worker and acquaintance decided to help make sure she lives to see her daughter grow up

CBS Los Angeles

BEAUMONT, Calif. — Two Riverside County Sheriff’s dispatchers are forever connected after a life-saving transplant.

Jennifer Hall and Michelle Nelson started out as coworkers who were not even friends outside of the office. When Nelson watched a video posted on Facebook of Hall’s daughter singing in the car, she hoped she could stay alive long enough to watch her own young daughter do the same.

Nelson was one of 100,000 people in the United States in desperate need of a kidney. The 35-year-old mom was placed on a waiting list, and knew it could take years — time she didn’t have — to find a donor.
