Woman donates in kidney exchange
Chain of four donors, four recipients includes her dad
By BECCA NEWELL

For almost five years, St. Michaels resident Sandy Saboury watched her father endure dialysis several times a week, disrupting any plans made for those days and basically disabling him from enjoying his retirement.
"I watched him work his whole entire life and then close to his retirement, he started getting sick," she said, explaining that her father, Jim Shomler, needed a kidney transplant to end his dialysis visits. "It just wiped him out."
