It didn’t matter where Jorge went, reporters would swoon in an attempt to get an interview. He wasn’t surprised. After all, his brain was the first to be successfully transplanted into another person’s body. The donor body was a young woman named Sofia. Neither her nor Jorge had consented to the transplant and the procedure had been done in secrecy with no government oversight. All this made for a very compelling story, yet Jorge was usually quite shy about the whole thing. It was only in a moment of extreme frustration that he spoke this time about his feelings on the matter.
“I’m thankful to be alive,” Was his answer to one reporter, “My body was sick. I didn’t have long to live. What Dr. Collins did was illegal and against my will, but it’s hard to argue with being alive.”
