The next day Criss went to see Brooke and Sandra. In Brooke's room she was reading as Criss came in. "And I thought I was the only early bird"he said. Brooke put her book down and saw Criss standing there with some flowers. "Hey Criss"she remarked. Criss walked in and gave her the flowers. "I asked your mom what kind of flowers you like"Criss stated. "Thanks Criss they're great and I thought you'd see Sandra first". "I did but she's still asleep" Criss replied which made Brooke chuckle. "My mom told me you were one of the reasons Sandra did this". "I was sort of in shock when your mom told me who your donor is. She told me that day because of what I told her about my transplant she decided to donate her organs too"Criss replied. "That's cool" she said.
"I have to get going but I'll try to stop in before you go back to Verrmont" Criss stated. "See yea". "Before I leave there's something I should tell you in my family the day I got my transplant my father called that day Rebirth so happy Rebirth Brooke"Criss stated and left. At the Luxor Criss was doing some work when Felix walked in. "Hey Felix what can I do for you?". "I heard what Sandra did last night". "Yea and the transplant worked so far"Criss replied. "I think what happened to you is rubbing off on a few people here and in other places". "What do you mean?"Criss inquired. "Well my daughter called me from college and she told me that her school had a blood drive and also people help find matches for people that need organs. She said some of them decided to do when they found out about your transplant"Felix stated.
"That's awesome even my crew is helping too Luke matched a guy in Boston who's been waiting for a kidney for five years"Criss stated. "That's great Criss". "So you willing to donate an organ Felix?"Criss inquired. "I'll stick to blood Criss" and Felix left as Criss chuckled. During lunch Criss went back to see Sandra. Criss got a surprise to swee his mom there too. "Mom what a surprise"Criss stated giving him a kiss. "Your mother came to see how I am"she replied. "I saw Brooke this morning she's looking great"Criss said. "That's great Christopher" Dimitra remarked. After a while Criss had to go back to The Luxor as he was walking he saw a teenager playing checkers with another person. "King me" she called out. "I thought you were surpose to let the sick ones win". "I'm going to get a drink you want one David". "No thanks"he stated as he laid back down. As the girl came out Criss walked up to her. "Hi". "I know you you're Criss Angel"she replied. "Tell what's up with him". "He's waiting for a heart for a few years"she replied. "Do you mind if I talk to him"Criss asked. "Sure" and Crisds went in. "How's it going?". "Hey you're Criss Angel"he said with a smile on his face. "I heard from your friend that you're waiting for a heart transplant" sitting next to him.
"Yea for-three years-but I don't think-I'm going to get it". "I thought they same way"Criss remarked. "You've had a heart transplant" Criss took off his shirt and showed him the scar. "I had a transplant twenty years ago and I thank god every day that I'm alive and you shouldn't be scared". "Thanks Criss"he replied with a smile on his face. Criss put his shirt back on and started to leave. As he left Criss turned and swear he saw himself in the kid. Dad if you can hear me find a heart for this kid please Criss thought. When Criss got back to the hotel he looked some info on organ donation he found some on Donatelife.net:
More than 114,000 men, women and children currently need life-saving organ transplants.
Every 10 minutes another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list.
An average of 18 people die each day from the lack of available organs for transplant.
In 2011, there were 8,127 deceased organ donors and 6,017 living organ donors resulting in 28,535 organ transplants.
Last year, more than 42,000 grafts were made available for transplant by eye banks within the United States.
According to research, 98% of all adults have heard about organ donation and 86% have heard of tissue donation.
90% of Americans say they support donation, but only 30% know the essential steps to take to be a donor.
"Now I realize why dad called my transplant Rebirth I just hope that a lot more people have a rebirth like I did"criss said to himself.
