So yesterday we had a story about a woman who got fired AFTER she donated her kidney to save her bosses life.  Well, we have an update today…and we REALLY don’t think you can do what she is asking of…

Here is the story from yesterday: There aren’t many things that should guarantee you job security for LIFE . . . but DONATING A KIDNEY to save your boss’s life really SHOULD be enough.  But it wasn’t for this woman. 47-year-old Debbie Stevens of West Islip, New York used to work at a company called Atlantic Automotive Group, which operates car dealerships.  Her boss was 61-year-old Jackie Brucia. In January of last year, Jackie said she needed a kidney to live, and her donor had been denied.  So Debbie graciously offered to donate a kidney to save her boss’s life . . . and actually followed through with it last August.  Jackie got the kidney and was saved. But Debbie had some complications after the surgery, and missed some work.  And she says Jackie called her at home to YELL at her for it.  And KEPT yelling at her when she finally got back to the office. Finally, Jackie FIRED Debbie . . . even though Debbie’s kidney is keeping her alive. On Friday, Debbie filed papers with the New York Human Rights commission claiming she was SET UP by Jackie so she could get a kidney . . . then fired once the donation was made.

UPDATE: The New York mother who was fired after she donated her kidney to save her boss’s life demanded that the woman return the organ. “You hate me so much, and I’m so despicable — give me my kidney back!” wailed 47-year-old Debbie Stevens, of Long Island. Her employer at Atlantic Automotive Group, Jackie Brucia, also 47, thanked Stevens for the gift Monday — and then “wished her the best.” “I will always be grateful that she gave me a kidney,” Brucia told 1010 WINS-AM radio. “I have nothing bad to say about her. I will always be grateful to her — she did a wonderful thing for me.” For Stevens to get her organ back would not be easy — and would involve at least four surgeries. Stevens donated her kidney to the national pool because she and Brucia were not a perfect match. That gave Brucia a better shot at getting a speedy transplant. Stevens’ kidney actually was transplanted into a patient in St. Louis, and Brucia’s came from San Francisco.

    I would not donate ANY body part to anybody I worked for. Some might say I’m being cold considering the situation, but ask yourself….would they do it for you?
