Chris Henry: Bengals' late WR leaves lasting legacy as organ donor

Updated at 3:29 p.m.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry died in an accident last December at the age of 26 and, thanks to the generosity of his mother, Carolyn Glaspy, four people have gotten a new chance at life. "The NFL Today" did an incredibly moving spot on it today -- James Brown wasn't the only one who was choked up.

"I lost my son, but I found four new families," Glaspy told the Los Angeles Times.

watch it if you didn't already. it was an excellent, touching piece, and I hope it will move other families to make the decision his mother did.
