It's a moment he only dreamed of, an Abilene man gets the chance to meet them stranger who saved his life. Dale Morrison was first diagnosed with cancer and then he learned he had a deadly brain virus. His doctors told him he needed a bone marrow transplant. Amazingly, doctors found someone with the same cell make-up and even the antibodies to fight the virus. So, Morrison flew the stranger and his family to Abilene, to meet for the first time. That stranger was Jeff Babbitt, a man from Seattle, Washington. Morrison is now cured of the virus, and in remission of the cancer.
