4-Year-Old’s Teacher Donates Kidney to Father In Need: ‘She’s An Amazing Lady’

By McKinley Corbley

Sharing is caring – and judging by what this teacher is sharing, she cares a lot.

Nancy Bleuer is a preschool teacher at Washington Charlie Brown Preschool and Childcare in Mason City, Iowa who will go to any and all lengths to ensure the wellbeing of her students.

So when she heard that the father of one of her 4-year-old students had been diagnosed with renal kidney failure, she leapt at the chance to donate her own.

Darreld Petersen, father of Camden, went on dialysis after his diagnoses in January. He managed to find a match after being put on the donor list, but the donor flaked on the transplant, leaving Darreld on yet another search for a kidney match.

Upon hearing the news from Camden, Bleuer filled out the necessary paperwork and found that she was a match. The two have been scheduled to undergo transplant surgery next month.

“It’s just amazing,” Petersen told ABC News. “There are people waiting every day for a kidney, for an organ in general. I wish there were more people like her. She’s giving me a second chance at life.”

“She’s an amazing lady and from day one she was gungho.”
