US woman donates kidney to ex mum-in-law to make up for leaving her son

London, Tue, 21 Aug 2012 ANI

London, August 21 (ANI): A woman has donated her kidney to her former mother-in-law to make up for walking out on her son more than eight years ago.

Erica Arsenault, 42, saw the plea for a kidney donation for Dorothy Wolferseder, 73, from her former sister-in-law on Facebook and immediately called the family to say she would find out if she were a match.

Within months she discovered she was a match and, in July, underwent the successful surgery to give her former mother-in-law a new lease of life.

But Erica, from Fitchburg, Massachusetts, didn't consider it a touching show of altruism, rather an act of penance for how she had treated Dorothy's son nearly a decade earlier.

Scott Wolferseder, 49, a police detective in Leominster, sat between his mother and ex-wife as he told the Boston Globe why his wife offered to undergo the risky surgery.

"Because of the hurt that she caused, not only myself, and our two boys, but the hurt that she caused my mom,' he said. 'And this was her way of... to make it right," the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.

Dorothy remains stunned that it was Erica who gave her a second chance.

"Erica gave me life. I feel reborn,' she said. 'Who would have ever thought," she said. (ANI)
