BOSTON (AP) — The father of Christina Taylor Green, the youngest victim of the Arizona massacre, says some of her organs have been donated to a young girl in the Boston area.

John Green told the Boston Globe in Sunday’s edition that he had received a phone call about the transplant, but he said he doesn’t know any other details about the donation.

He said the call “really lifted” his spirit and said he and his wife are proud parents once again of their daughter, “who has done another amazing thing.”

Nine-year-old Christina was born Sept. 11, 2001.

She had just been elected to her Tucson school’s student council, which is why she went to see Rep. Gabrielle Giffords on Jan. 8.

A spokesman for the New England Organ Bank told the Globe he couldn’t comment on donations.

The Arizona Republic on Friday reported that Tucson Bishop Gerald Kicanas told the crowd at Christina’s funeral that her organs had been donated.
