Richard DeVos, 83, was interviewed in The Grand Rapids Press yesterday. The multi-billionaire is one of the two founders of Amway, celebrating its fiftieth birthday and hence the article.

The donor, a woman in England, received a heart-lung transplant. Presumably she needed lungs, her heart was okay, and DeVos had the money to fly to England and make the transplant happen.

Huh. Neat in a weird way.

Just thought you'd be interested.
