A Fil-Vietnamese woman shared her story of how she donated a kidney to her then-boyfriend, who eventually cheated on her.
On TikTok, Colleen Le’s video has gone viral with more than 1.5 million views. She wrote how she remembered that her ex-bf has one of her kidneys. She also had an earlier story about the whole incident.
According to Colleen, she and her then-boyfriend used to be good friends before getting into a relationship. She shared that he was honest that he was suffering from a chronic kidney disease and that he needed to go through peritoneal dialysis every night for nine hours.
His kidney function was below 5 percent and he was already nearing the end, she told Manila Bulletin.
In May 2016, Colleen made a big decision to get tested and see if she’s a match for a kidney donation. Finally, the surgery happened and the boyfriend got one of Colleen’s kidneys.
Seven months later, Colleen got the biggest shock when he admitted he cheated on her while on a trip in Las Vegas.
But that wasn’t even the last as Colleen forgave him and they continued their relationship.
Three months later, the boyfriend blocked her and ended everything between them.
Colleen shared on People, “He broke it off, hung up, blocked me and stopped answering my calls and texts — just cut ties with me immediately.”
Although at one point, she felt so hurt that he wanted to burn her donor certificate. Despite everything, the woman said she has no regrets.
Colleen said, “Saving someone’s life, I could never regret that. It still feels good.”
“I’m still proud of myself for giving someone a second chance at life,” she adds.
According to Colleen, she’s not sure if the viral story reached her ex-boyfriend. Although she heard rumors that he’s now happily married.
