This story of an unlikely couple is a reminder that giving into despair and fatalism is not necessary:
It was pure chance that [Chris] Dempsey came into [Heather] Krueger’s life.All that is necessary to resist evil is the knowledge that sometimes, occasionally, against all odds, the good guys sometimes win.
The code-enforcement officer in Frankfort, Ill., overheard one of his co-workers talk about a cousin who was dying of cancer and desperately needed a liver transplant.
Dempsey readily agreed to get tested to see if he was a match.
“I spent four years in the Marine Corps and learned there never to run away from anything,” he explained to CBS News. “So I just said to myself, ‘Hey, if I can help, I’m going to help.’ ”
He turned out to be a match.
