Washington Post: She saved her 7-year-old brother’s life. Then the virus threatened to take it.. “Reign Howard knew that her brother, Messiah, 7, needed something called a bone marrow transplant, but she didn’t really understand what that meant. Messiah’s doctor tried to explain it to her as she sat in his office, her hair tied up in Afro puffs and her leopard-print sneakers dangling off the chair. ‘Will it hurt?’ she asked, and he told her that it would, at least for a few days. She could say no if the surgery was too scary, the doctor at Children’s Hospital in New Orleans told her, but Reign didn’t hesitate.” Reign Howard has the heart of a lion and I wish everyone knew her name.

Washington Post: A woman was hospitalized with covid-19. One of her aides turned out to be her long-lost sister.. “It was a regular day at the Nebraska rehabilitation center last month when Bev Boro, a medication aide, looked over her patient list. Suddenly, a name on the list stopped her cold: Doris Crippen. ‘I kept saying, “Oh my God,”‘ said Boro, 53. ‘That must be her.’ She had not seen her older sister in more than 50 years, though the two had long been searching for each other.”
