On November 25, 2010, Nellie experienced something she never anticipated in her wildest dreams or nightmares. She became a kidney donor to her husband. Talk about fear for the 10 months leading up to the surgery! During that time Nellie’s husband kidneys failed, he went on dialysis, had major back surgery and continued working. Nellie gifted her kidney to her husband for their 42nd wedding anniversary. Nellie chose to take advantage of her fear and time of isolation to make opportunity knock. During that time, she completed two books, the first in an inspirational, self-help series she had been developing. Her husband is now free of dialysis and Nellie continues to marvel in disbelief at their experience.
