NEVSEHIR, Turkey, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- A Turkish woman who has been receiving kidney dialysis treatments for 12 years said she received a kidney from an unlikely source -- her husband's mistress.

Meliha Avci, 34, of Nevsehir, said her husband, Mehmet, began an affair with Ayse Imdat, 34, five years ago after meeting her at the hospital while Meliha was receiving treatment, Today's Zaman reported Thursday.

Meliha, who previously received a blood donation from Imdat, said she only recently found out about the affair.

"We have shared blood, we have shared my husband and now we are sharing kidneys," she said.

She said Imdat insisted she accept the kidney donation.

"In all the years that I have suffered from kidney problems I have never said to anyone, 'Would you give me a kidney,'" Meliha Avci said. "However, Ayse was insistent that I should take her kidney. Now my life has completely changed. I have Ayse and my husband to thank for this."
