Guy Joined Bone Marrow Donor Line to Talk to Pretty Girl, Saved Kid's Life

A guy in England named Billy Higgins recently stood in line to donate bone marrow, just so he could talk to a pretty girl  he saw in line.  And his bone marrow ended up saving the life of a  10-year-old kid named Rupert Cross.  

He also ended up marrying the girl he stood in line to talk to.

The BBC reports

A 10-year-old boy who had a rare blood disorder has been reunited with the man who helped save his life.

Rupert  Cross, from Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire, was diagnosed four years  ago and spent 80 days in a specialist unit at Great Ormond Street  Hospital on a course of chemotherapy.

Billy Higgins, from Essex,  joined the bone marrow register when he saw a woman he liked in the  queue, who has since become his wife.

He was found to be a match and had an operation to become a donor.

Rupert, who loves playing sport, has since gone on to make a full recovery and describes Billy as his "superman".

Hey Billy Higgins - if you're out there reading this -  you saved a kid's life and you sweet talked a princess..  That means you're pretty awesome.  Thanks for Billy Higgins.  The world needs more dudes like you.
