Man Donates Bone Marrow To Talk To A Woman On The Donation Line & The Outcome Is Awesome! 

By MJ (Dana Parisi)

This story is fantastic! So many happy endings at once! There's a guy in southeast England named Billy Higgins who recently signed up to donate bone marrow all because he wanted to talk to a woman he saw standing in line. He didn’t wake up with intentions on donating that day, but this girl caught his eye, so he jumped on line.  He played his cards right that day because he married that girl. But that’s not all... His bone marrow ended up saving the life of a 10-year-old boy named Rupert Cross.   Rupert spent about 80 days in the hospital after he was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder. Then he matched with Billy's bone marrow, and the transplant completely cured him.   They recently got to meet up for the first time. And Rupert's mom got so emotional about it, she couldn't stop crying. —
