This is an amazing video capturing a look at volunteer firefighter Patrick Hardison’s face transplant surgery after he was severely burned during a home call. Columbus, Ohio native BMX rider, David Rodebaugh, died in an accident while living in New York City, and following his death David’s family agreed that as an organ donor, David’s would give a new face to Patrick. What an amazing and larger than life legacy to give. Much respect to David, Patrick, and their families in this sad, beautiful and powerful journey.
