Calif. dispatcher's kidney saves coworker's life
Jennifer Hall and Michelle Nelson started out as coworkers who were not even friends outside of the office

BEAUMONT, Calif. — Jennifer Hall and Michelle Nelson started out as coworkers who were not even friends outside of the office.
Nelson was one of 100,000 people in the United States in desperate need of a kidney. The 35-year-old mom was placed on a waiting list, and knew it could take years — time she didn’t have — to find a donor.
Something inside 36-year-old Hall told her she needed to help Nelson. Though the two weren’t close friends, they had worked together for years at the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. Three weeks ago, Hall underwent the surgery to donate her kidney to her longtime coworker and fellow mom.
