Meanwhile, donated corneas from 9-year-old Christina Taylor Green who was killed in the Jan. 8 shooting have saved the eyesight of two children, her father, John Green, told the Associated Press on Monday.

Mr. Green said the Donor Network of Arizona told him and his wife about the successful transplants. He said he doesn’t know whether any of Christina’s other organs have gone to any other children, but he’s under the impression that her wounds rendered her internal organs unusable.

Christina was the youngest victim of the shooting that left six dead and 13 others wounded, including Mrs. Giffords. Mr. Green said he and his wife, Roxanna, didn’t hesitate to allow doctors to use Christina’s organs.

“The fact that her organs were able to help people, that was an amazing thing to me,” he said. “It’s just another thing that this little girl has given the world.”
