Newest Double Hand Transplant

What an amazing opportunity I had today to interview the newest double hand transplant patient. (Click here to watch my report.)

This is Chris. He’s from Harrisburg… but you can see why he feels right at home here in Pittsburgh!

Chris got this Steelers tattoo in 1996 and is a life-long fan.  Doctors were very careful to save the tattoo as they attached a new arm just below the tattoo. Chris also has a new hand on his left side.

He lost both hands and most of his right arm in a farming accident in 2008 while helping a friend.  You can hear more about his experience tonight on Action News at 6:00.
