BOSTON – The father of the youngest victim of the Arizona massacre says some of her organs have been donated to a young girl in the Boston area.
John Green tells The Boston Globe in Sunday's edition that he received a phone call about the transplant, but he doesn't know any other details about the donation.
He says the call "really lifted" his spirit, and he and his wife are proud parents once again of their daughter, "who has done another amazing thing."
Nine-year-old Christina Taylor Green was born Sept. 11, 2001.
She had just been elected to her Tucson school's student council, which is why she went to see Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
A spokesman for the New England Organ Bank says he can't comment on donations.
The Arizona Republic reported Friday that Tucson's bishop told the crowd at Christina's funeral that her organs had been donated.
Such a tragic ending for such a sweet little girl but we know she is in heaven with the LORD and even in her death has made an impact on so many. May the child who has her organs live a full life like Christina tried to do in her short 9 years.
