    TX - Cancer survivor gets first ever skull, scalp transplant

    55-year-old James Boysen was left with a badly damaged head after a series of gruelling cancer surgeries in Houston, Texas. Now he has had the world's first ever skull and scalp transplant and new kidney and pancreas too, from the same donor.

    Mr Boysen says he's forever grateful.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
