36-1 The kidney and its cortical and pyramidal substance.

Jim Merthe and Debby Neal-Strickland had their first date ten years ago, more than two decades after Merthe and his first wife divorced. They married recently, and two days after exchanging vows and rings, the new bride donated a kidney to Jim’s ex-wife Mylaen Merthe.

The women, who now call themselves kidney sisters, are planning a family trip this summer.
