A woman who donated a kidney to a man she was dating, has gone viral on social media after claiming he ended their relationship just months after his operation.
Colleen Le, 30, who lives in America, explained that her boyfriend at the time needed a kidney transplant because he was struggling to live with chronic kidney disease that left him needing dialysis at just age 17.
She volunteered to donate one of her kidneys after a test proved that they were a match, however less than a year after the operation he cheated and then broke up with her a few months later.
The TikTok star has racked up over 2 million likes on her clips sharing the devastating sequence of events, with many praising her for saving her ex-boyfriend’s life and commenting that he didn’t deserve her.
In one of her first videos, Colleen revealed that her ex-boyfriend told her his kidney functioned at less than five per cent.
‘I decided to get tested to see if we were a match because I didn’t want to watch him die. I was so nervous’.
On finding out she was a match, Colleen went ahead with the donation and the couple made a full recovery after the successful transplant. However, in a follow-up video, she explained that their relationship was soon under strain.
Seven months after the procedure her boyfriend claimed he was going to a bachelor party in Vegas with his church group for the weekend.
Colleen said she didn’t have any concerns about the trip because he was a devoted Christian and chose to focus on studying for her finals.
The TikTok star was left speechless when her boyfriend returned home and revealed that he had cheated during his time away.
‘A lot of arguments later… I eventually forgave him and gave him a second chance.’
Colleen explained that just three months later he ended the relationship saying:
‘If we are meant for each other, God will bring us back together in the end’.
He went on to block her on all social media platforms.
She has since shared her heartbreak in a series of clips, including one in which she claims her ex-boyfriend accused her of donating a kidney to ‘look good’.
The clips have gained millions of views with many blasting the behaviour of Colleen’s boyfriend following the kidney transplant.
One person commented: ‘I wonder if he understands the seriousness of donating a kidney. You literally sacrificed your life for someone. You are a beautiful soul’
‘Don’t worry girl, he literally cannot live without you and he has to deal with that for the rest of his life,’ another wrote.
A third said:
‘He didn’t deserve you nor did he deserve the gift you gave him’
‘You should still be proud of yourself, knowing you saved someone’s life is the biggest flex’
