    Default young AZ victim an organ donor

    Finally good to see an uplifting story amidst all the grief, albeit somewhat bittersweet...
    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 says he doesn't know any other details about the donation.

    He says the call "really lifted" his spirit and says 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 tells the Globe he can't comment on donations.

    The Arizona Republic on Friday reported that Tucson's Bishop Gerald Kicanas told the crowd at Christina's funeral that her organs had been donated.
