Angel Heros Abound! – #WATWB

Ever since a dear friend saved my life, I’ve carried a torch for him, and admired others who, like him, give unselfishly to help others. In so doing, I believe, such people enhance the development of their own souls.

When I went looking for inspiring stories about heroes for this month’s We Are The World Blogfest (#WATWB,) I came across this lovely one about a man who cured his depression by giving unselfishly of his bone marrow to a woman who needed it to survive leukemia (the marrow, unexpectedly, did even more).

Below is the link to the article in its entirety:

At the end of each month, we bloggers are given an opportunity to post good news, offering an antidote to bad news in our feeds. For every dark, negative story out there, there is a positive, heartwarming story that will add some light and lift the human spirit. #WATWB was started in March 2017; we’ve been sharing positive, uplifting stories to inspire, give hope and motivate others for many years now. This month’s co-hosts are Eric Lahti and Susan Scott. Please check out their blogs and say hello.

    Lizbeth, this is a wonderful story of compassion and giving of self without a second thought. Kudos to Gage for his selfless heart and the great things this one act did for both Ms. Jensen and himself. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks for writing, Mary, and I agree; what a brave, unselfish act, giving bone marrow can’t be easy. You’re welcome; thank goodness for the #WATWB giving us a place to share such stories!

    Wow! That’s awesome. One thing I’ve always heard about donating bone marrow is it’s really painful. Good on him!

      I agree, Eric, and thanks for writing and reading my post 🙂 That’s what I’ve heard, too, very painful, and am humbled by his generosity, that involved such sacrifice.
