But in 2020, her health deteriorated and her kidney could only function at 8 per cent.

It was reported that her brother was willing to donate his kidney to her but it did not match and therefore Debby volunteered to be the donor.

WSBTV reported that it was easy for Debby to donate her kidney to hubby's ex-wife because they had been very friendly at family gatherings, though not very close.

It should be noted Debby's hubby Jim Merthe and Mylaen had been divorced for nearly two decades but had maintained a good relationship because they had been raising their two children.

Debby disclosed that she wanted to make her hubby's ex-wife happy because she was about to become a grandmother for the first time since her daughter was expectant.

''I imagined Mylaen’s daughter giving birth and her mom not being there. I just couldn’t try to change that. God told me, ‘You’re a match and you need to do this.'” Debby said.

Debby's desire to help Mylaen was also triggered by the fact that she spent many years watching her brother die of cystic fibrosis while awaiting a double lung transplant.

According to her own testimony, she offered one of her lungs to her brother but she was not a match and he also needed two not just one.

Her kind gesture towards her husband's ex-wife impressed many netizens who lauded her on different social media platforms.

Some people, however, noted that she was just plainly ''stupid'' for making such sacrifice for hubby and his ex-wife.
