Life-Saving Teacher Donates Kidney To Sick Student
It can be said that teachers have one of the toughest jobs. Their endless guidance, hours in the classroom and lessons make them incredible assets to the world. But what about those teachers who go above their 'normal' duties? They remind us there are people willing to go out of their way to improve lives.
That is just what teacher, 39-year-old Nadirah Muhammad, did. When she heard about a student's struggle with kidney disease she had to do something. The sick student, A'Ja Booth, would have to leave school early three days a week to undergo dialysis treatments.
Muhammad made the 'easy decision' to donate one of her kidneys to Booth. "This is the result of my simple act of kindness, because God blesses us every single day. So what I did, I don't see as a sacrifice, it was a blessing, and I was happy to have that spirit and to help my fellow man,” Muhammad said.
After surgery, Booth and Muhammad returned to school arm in arm. A celebration was held and many thanks were given. Booth is expected to fully recover and plans on attending Oakland University where she hopes to one day become a nurse. She said she "can't thank her life-saving teacher enough."
