Christina Taylor Green's Organs Save Another Little Girl
Some of the organs of Christina Taylor Green, the nine-year-old girl who died in the Tucson shootings last week, were donated to a little girl in Boston. Christina's father told the Boston Globe, "We're proud parents once again of our daughter, who has done another amazing thing."
The Globe couldn't confirm details of the donation with Boston-area hospitals because of patient confidentiality, so it's not clear which organs were used or for what purpose. Regardless, this is a rare note of positivity in an otherwise tragic story.
Christina's father also told the Globe that the Greens want to meet the family of the little girl who received Christina's organs. "We hope their little one is OK," he said. "We hope our daughter's gift really helps them.''
