This is a heart warming story. I always had the donor chip on my drivers licence, but I am now so old,I doubt there is much left for donating. But my hair, even at age 73, is still very long and full and never damaged by coloring. It is not my younger color but back to a baby blond and I would like that to be given to a cancer patient.

I agree with the thought that it was divine intervention. Great story to read and my best wishes to all.

Just think where we would be if Bush/Cheney had never started this war.

I bet the doctors and hospital didn't donate a thing - they made a mint off of Ben's organs

Kopp is a real hero. We don't give enough credit to people like him.

Instead we worship New York television or Hollywood movie types. And we wonder why our country has gone wrong.

Posters - try looking at human interest and people doing good things instead of being so damn cynical.

Why, because we are safe from another terrorist attack in America?

Yep, we would have more cities destroyed by terrorism on our own soil. People sick and dying from the "dirty bombs" detonated by extremists who came for terrorist camps in Iraq, Afghanistan, and a whole host of other countries that would have been infiltrated by these extremists as they got closer and closer to setting up such camps in our own country. THATS where we would be. Idiot.

This is a great story. One that deserves to be told without MORONS like "citydealer" and his/her ignorance spewed all over.

What a wonderful uplifting story. It made me feel good all over. Don't forget to designate yourself as a donor. You can see the utmost happiness to live in the woman's face.

You can donate your hair now. It will be made into a wig for a cancer patient.
Grow it back and do it again and again.

It's too bad they haven't figured out a way to transplant common sense and humanity. You would be a great donor!

You are a fool if you think that Bush's war has anything to do with that, and that we really are "safe." If anything, Bush's little war only increased the likelihood that Al Quada will eventually succeed with another attack as it's intensified their resolve and brought in more young recruits. Bush only went after Saddam because his daddy didn't finish the job. At least daddy Bush had a good reason and alliance backing, his son was just a bully and made a real big mess.

Using your logic, I have to assume that my martian repulser is working, because no martians have landed in the US.

Yep, I see that you've had a big helping of the Bush/Cheney kool aid. You've bought the story hook, line, & stinker. Damn good thing that sonofabitch is out of office before he could do any more damage.
