PERUGIA, Italy, Jan. 31 (UPI) — An Italian woman said she is willing to give up a kidney in exchange for a job for her 38-year-old son.

The Perugia woman, whose name was not released, told the daily La Nazione she had “nothing left to lose and nothing to be ashamed of” in offering her kidney in exchange for employment for her son, ANSA reported Tuesday.

The woman said her son speaks multiple languages but has been unemployed since his business went bankrupt in August of last year.

“One kidney is enough for me to live on; therefore, I am willing to give it up to help a 38-year-old smile again,” the woman said.
