Woman gives husband life-saving kidney, then gets dumped

Woman Gives Life-Saving Kidney To Husband Who Then Dumps Her
What started out as the gift of life has now turned into heartbreak for one British woman. 'Fox & Friends' has the story.

'A British woman saves her dying husband's life by giving him one of her kidneys. In return he dumps her! She now wants the organ back.'

Samantha Lamb told the Sunday People she wishes she'd never donated her kidney to her husband, Andy, saying, 'I hate him. If I could I'd take it back and give it [to] someone else.'

Samantha also alleges Andy had an affair with one of her friends. He reportedly denies the claim, though, saying he was only helping to train the friend's dog.

Daily Mail says Samantha and Andy met on the job back in 2004. They were both drivers for a private ambulance firm. The couple tied the knot three years later.

Andy underwent the kidney transplant surgery in 2009. Samantha says in August 2012, just three years later, Andy walked out on her while she was at work.

Samantha has since filed for divorce.

I like one of the other comments, charge him rent! This was someone who out of love donated one of her kidneys to keep him alive, and that's how he repays her? And what does that say about the other woman.

I know i was thinking it was recently, but if she knew this was going to happen do u think she would let him die? I wonder.

Her devastation is completely understandable. She gave him the gift of life and he then hurt her (albeit several yrs later). I loaned money to a friend last year who then turned around and dumped me. At least I could go to court and get it back, which I did. She really has no recourse and it has to feel terrible. Like someone else said here, she will be rewarded. Karma works both ways... good and bad.

She did good, she saved a life. She should leave it like that and just walk away, by doing that she is a better person. God have mercy on her ex, we all know that what comes around goes around double !

The gift of life is "non-returnable" and "non-refundable"! The guy is a jerk, that's for sure, but it sounds like she assumed they would stay together forever because she gave him a kidney. Was her selfless act, really a way to try to keep this guy in the relationship forever? If you give someone a kidney (and I did), it is a gift of life with NO STRINGS ATTACHED.
