When you have small children at home it is very difficult to have secrets. When the teacher saw the boy crying, he decided to find out what he had. A father’s phone call left him in shock.
The teacher is the second most important person in a child’s life. Nancy Bleur is a 54-year-old teacher from Lowa. She always tries to do the best for her students.
One day she noticed that 4-year-old Camden was not behaving well and that he had a problem, so he decided to talk to her to find out what he had. The boy said something that made her heart sink. He thought he had to do something.
Apparently, Darreld Petersen, 34, the boy’s father was very ill. When Nancy realized it was severe she became more concerned about how it might affect the boy. So he decided to call his father.
Darreld’s kidneys were in very poor condition and only functioned at 20% of their capacity. During dialysis, he looked very bad which terrified the boy.
Nancy decided to help the family as much as she could. You might think she offered to babysit, help with the groceries, cook, or any other daily chore – but Nancy went much further than that in lending her hand.
She offered Darreld one of her kidneys. She was a perfect match.
“I was excited about it. I was ecstatic. I don’t know what I would’ve done for closure if I wasn’t [a match], ”she says.
The father was shocked by the offer made by his son’s teacher.
“It’s just amazing. People are waiting every day for a kidney, for an organ in general. I wish there were more people like her. She’s giving me a second chance at life, ”Darreld said.
When his family heard about this, they took the teacher a bouquet to the school.
The world is full of good people! If everyone were as selfless as Nancy, the world would be a better place. Now let’s hope that the operation runs smoothly and that they both have a speedy recovery.
