ATLANTA – Office bathroom small talk can be awkward, but the conversation between two coworkers in their office bathroom ended up saving two lives.
Susan Ellis and Tia Wimbush had worked together for years in the IT department at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Both of their husbands went into renal failure around the same time and both of them needed kidney transplants.
It was a random bathroom conversation in the fall of 2019 when they realized something incredible about each other’s circumstances.
“We were washing our hands and we started having the conversation about where my husband and I were in the transplant evaluation process,” remembers Wimbush. “We started talking about blood types and Susan mentioned that her husband, Lance, is O negative and it was like a light bulb moment went off in my head.”
Wimbush is blood type O. Ellis’s husband needed a kidney from someone with blood type O.
Ellis revealed that she’s blood type A. Wimbush’s husband needed a kidney from someone with blood type A.
