NEW YORK, NY. (CNN) - A New York single mother, who donated a kidney to help save her boss' life, has filed a lawsuit against her.  Debbie Stevens says her boss used her power to get her a job, and then got her fired.  Jackie Brucia told Stevens she was on the list for a kidney transplant.

Stevens decided to donate one of her kidney's but wasn't a perfect match for Brucia and ended up donating her kidney to someone here in St. Louis.

That allowed her boss to move up on the donor list, eventually getting a transplant.

Stevens returned to work before she was ready, and was berated by her boss.
