Woman donates kidney to boss, who then fires her

Debbie Stevens, a 47-year-old single mother of two from Long Island, donates a kidney to help her ailing boss Jackie Brucia, also 47, and then the donor gets fired!

Stevens worked at the Atlantic Auto Mall for Brucia. When the employee heard about her boss’s health, she wanted to help out. She donated her kidney to a patient in need of the organ, so that her boss could get one that was a perfect match of her.

The three-way switch worked out for Brucia, but for Debbie … her gift of life turned into a nightmare. Debbie felt that Brucia was always at odds with her when they both went back to work, culminating with Debbie getting fired.

The ditched donor is suing her ex-employer in a discrimination lawsuit.
