FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida woman has gained national attention after she donated a kidney to her husband’s ex-wife just two days after she married the man.
Ten years after their first date, Debby Neal-Strickland put on a cream-colored lace gown and married her longtime sweetheart at their Florida church. Two days later, she put on a hospital gown and donated a kidney to Mylaen Merthe — her new husband’s ex-wife.
An unusual story? Yes. But the tale of Jim Strickland and his two wives is a testament to how love and compassion can triumph over division.
