One of our First National Title (FNTI) agents, South Land Title, LLC in Bryan, Texas, has two employees involved in an incredible five-way kidney transplant swap that took place in October. Debra Lewing, an examiner, and her boss, Dawn Thomas, played major roles in the swap that helped not only Debra but four others as well.
Dawn learned that Debra was in a high-risk group due to her failing kidney health when Debra asked to work from home at the beginning of the pandemic. Dawn offered to donate one of her kidneys, and although the two weren’t a match, they did enter the swap program that ultimately found a kidney for Debra.
Here is a link to the full story that ran in The Houston Chronicle detailing the story of each of the five recipients and donors involved. (https://www.houstonchronicle.com/lifestyle/renew-houston/health/article/Houston-Methodist-kidney-donation-swap-good-15670935.php) Both ladies are back to work at South Land Title and doing well.
We knew that our agents were special, but this story goes well beyond that. FNTI is proud to recognize the generosity and courage of both Debra Lewing and Dawn Thomas of South Land Title, LLC.
