STORIES OF HOPE
The Chris Henry Story originally ran on CBS Sports Thanksgiving Day 2010. The heart-warming story recalls the fatal accident that took the life of the Cincinnati Bengals wide-receiver, his mother’s courageous decision to donate his organs and the gift of life that followed for the four people who received his organs. LifeShare is pleased to have had a part in bringing the Chris Henry Story to life.
