Widow Touches Her Deceased Husband’s Face Again After It Was Donated for a Transplant

A widow was able to run her fingers across her deceased husband’s face again after it was donated to a man who survived a suicide attempt.

Andy Sandness survived a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the face in Christmas 2006 that left him disfigured and without a nose and jaw. When he returned home after his recovery—wearing prosthetics that would often fall from his face—he distanced himself from social situations and lied to people when they asked what had happened. Things would start to change in 2012, when he joined a face transplant program at the Mayo Clinic that matched him with a donor in 2016. After going through a 56-hour-long surgery, Sandness had a new face, which he received from Calen Ross, who committed suicide that year.

Sandness was finally able to meet with Calen’s widow, Lilly Ross, at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota on November 3. The meeting gave Lilly the first opportunity to see and touch her husband’s face since his death.

“Meeting Andy, it has finally giving me closure,” Lilly told the AP.

Calen committed suicide when Lilly was pregnant with their son in 2016. After his passing, Lilly decided to donate his organs to people in need. When doctors reviewed the face to see how well it would match with Sandness, they said the men’s ages, blood type, skin color and facial structure were so near-perfect that they could have been cousins.

Lilly brought along her 17-month-old son, Lenoard, to the emotional meeting so he could see how his father was able to help a stranger, she said. On the day of meeting, Lenoard was apprehensive to approach Sandness, but after some time had passed, he walked over to him and waved to Sandness to pick him up.

Sandness takes anti-rejection medication every day, and he is continually retraining his nerves to work together with his new face. He says the alphabet to himself while driving to improve his speech, and gives himself massages whenever he can. The transplant has worked wonders for his self-confidence, and Sandness said he is no longer hiding from the world.

“Now I’m just really spreading my wings and doing the things I missed out on—going to restaurants and eating, going dancing,” Sandness, 32, said.

Plastic surgeon Dr. Samir Mardini, who conducted the operation, said he, too, sees a positive change since the surgery.

“It turns out Andy is not as much of an introvert as we thought,” Mardini said. “He’s enjoying these times, where he’s missed out on 10 years of his life.”

If you or someone you know is showing warning signs of suicide, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK, text the Crisis Text Lineat 741741 or seek help from a professional.

Carine Roitfeld, CR Studio Curate Latest Veuve Clicquot Widow Series

WIDOW DRESSING: Carine Roitfeld and her content team at CR Studio will curate the third Veuve Clicquot Widow Series in London in October. Roitfeld follows Nick Knight, who worked on the inaugural series, and FKA Twigs who oversaw last year’s creative and cultural event.
The series honors the house’s founder Madame Clicquot, who was widowed in October 1805. She took on her late husband’s Champagne business and pioneered several industry innovations. Each year, the series taps a creative type who has “an unfulfilled desire or passion project” they want to bring to life.
“I’m a storyteller, that’s my job as an editor and stylist. This opportunity is completely different, and now my team at CR Studio and I have the opportunity to tell a story with the viewer actually experiencing the story as we tell it,” Roitfeld said. “It’s not a party, it’s a truly immersive experience, a different way of thinking.”
Jean-Marc Gallot, president of Maison Veuve Clicquot, said the house wanted Roitfeld for her “artistic yet audacious aesthetic” and fashion leadership over the decades. “We welcome another empowering woman into the house of Veuve Clicquot.”
Last year, FKA Twigs let her imagination run wild and curated “Rooms,” an immersive experience featuring 12

How One Widow Went From Mourning The Passing Of Her Husband To Being A Successful Sex Instructor

“In a nutshell, we do it all! I employ 60 fetish masters so it isn’t hard to find someone for a session. Just like that” says Leona snapping her finger, “The session is paid for and scheduled!” This is Leona, whose name has been changed to protect her identity, and she runs an adult fetish service in which very few things are not on the menu.

Leona says that her online fetish menu was specifically designed to expand the sex lives of people in stale relationships, something she knows little about as there wasn’t anything neither she nor her husband wanted to try, that they DIDN’T try. “When we first met it was seriously the hottest sex I had ever had! The bathroom, the car, in a reception hall BEFORE guests were seated. YES I said a reception hall! We were running late to my cousins wedding and we thought, why sit in the church during the ceremony when we could be the first to the reception! We crept into the venue WHILE the ceremony was going on around the corner one street over and christened it as only the 2 of us could!” Leona describes her married sex life as something they both looked forward to at least 7 times a week.

“He was the love of my life and when he passed, I was devastated. It took some time for me to come around because although our life together wasn’t built around sex, sex was a huge part of it!”
Leona says that a year into mourning was when she came up with the idea to help people in relationships in which the one thing that was missing was an uninhibited sex life. “That’s where I come in OR I send one of my associates in for a session. We specialize, across the board, in pretty much everything. BUT” says Leona, “I draw the line at ANYTHING having to do with children or animals! Anyone comes to me with THAT type of a fantasy or fetish and I REPORT THEM! But let’s say your partner wants to try anal, double penetration maybe bringing in a third party into bed with the two of you, all these things can be scary to someone if the wrong people are brought in. We on the other hand are the right people to incorporate into your sex lives because we teach you how to do it right!” She emphasizes that she isn’t running a brothel and that “you can’t hire us to come out and have sex with you, we’re hired to teach you how to try new things safely.”

Leona says that nine times out of ten, when your partner comes home and wants to try something new, the other person in the relationship automatically wonders WHERE they got this new idea, “Aren’t you turned on anymore?” seems to be THE most common question. “You know, men talk with their friends and we women talk with ours. It’s not that either isn’t happy in the relationship, but it’s like if every week you have spaghetti on Wednesday and grilled fish on Thursday…you know what you’re getting and how it’s going to taste right? But what if you didn’t have that every week, you’d look forward to it that much more when you did have it!”
She goes on to say that so long as 2 consenting adults agree on trying something new, that’s the first step to spicing up their sex life. And, she’s one click away. Literally scheduled for sessions online, one can click on Leona to service your fetish privately in the locale of your choice.

“First of all, you have to be 18 years old or older to navigate my site. Once you’re in, you’re invited to peruse the menu and make your selections. Let’s say you and your significant other want to try anal, you click on that fetish, then click on the instructor of your choice, male or female then you schedule your session on our calendar and finally pay our fee and wala! You’re done!”

Leona says that believe it or not, not everyone knows what they’re doing when trying a new fetish and that’s the reason why they shy away from trying something new. “It should never be about your partner wanting to beat you up in order to get off! It has to be enjoyable for everyone involved!” Leona says that one of the most popular requests is for women to turn the tables on their partners who enjoy marital rape. “Listen, rape is rape! Just because you’re married doesn’t make it your own personal sex buffet. Unless, that’s something you two agree upon. But you should NEVER agree to something because you’re afraid of losing your partner. Sex should be something you look forward to, you shouldn’t be afraid of it!”

Leona says that she only employs sexually open minded people who work with her service on a full time basis. “My fetish masters are just that, masterfully skilled sex operatives who know EXACTLY how a fetish should be enjoyed. There are some fetishes that sincerely need to be spaced out before enjoying too often. Every orifice we have isn’t meant for penetration and once it’s been enjoyed, it may need at least 21 days or so before it can be penetrated again.”

I wonder if Leona is in a relationship and her answer is no. She says that her husband was the love of her life and she doubts she’ll ever meet anyone like him again and she’s ok with that. She also says that she enjoys the sessions she’s incorporated into because it gives her the opportunity to impart a little wisdom upon her employers. “Never take each other for granted and be open to new things. So long as no one is in danger and the main objective is to have a great time sexually? Do it, enjoy it! You only have one life to live!”
I couldn’t have said it better myself Leona! Bravo!

How This Widow Is Keeping Her Husband’s Memory Alive For Their Sons (VIDEO)

During the final season of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” Oprah and her team took the show — and one very lucky studio audience — to Australia for the adventure of a lifetime. There was an unprecedented look inside sacred caves, an encounter with some frisky koalas, Hugh Jackman on a zip line… and one particularly unforgettable Aussie couple.

Kristian and Rachel Anderson were college sweethearts living in a suburb of Sydney with their two young boys, Cody and Jakob. Not long before “The Oprah Show” arrived in Australia, Kristian had been diagnosed with liver and bowel cancer, and was literally in the fight of his life. Touched by the couple’s story (which gained attention after Kristian posted a loving video tribute to his wife on YouTube), Oprah had them join her for an episode at the Sydney Opera House and gave them a special surprise.

“We wanted them to spend every ounce of their energy being together and focused on getting well,” Oprah told the Opera House audience, before turning toward the couple. “You shouldn’t worry about the bills… because you will be getting a check for a quarter of a million dollars.”

Sadly, a year after that show, Kristian lost his battle with cancer at age 36. Now, almost three years after his death, Rachel tells “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” how she and their sons have been coping.

“Since we were on ‘The Oprah Show,’ life is… it’s pretty much turned upside down for us,” Rachel says. “In sad ways and good ways.”

With the $ 250,000 gift, the Andersons felt a great sense of relief and gratitude to be able to spend some incredible quality time together. “We booked a Disney cruise, and went to Disney World and Disney Land,” Rachel says, smiling. “[We] had the most magical time as a family.”

The Andersons made the most of their time together, and after Kristian passed, Rachel was devastated. “It was like living in a black hole,” she says quietly. “I remember waking up the first morning after he died. I remember lying there and seeing his wardrobe open and his clothes all there. Just realizing that was it. That was all that we had left. He was gone.”

In the midst of her grief, Rachel focused on her children, though she often struggled when either of her boys reached a childhood milestone. “About two weeks after [Kristian] died, Cody lost his first tooth and I just remember being devastated that Kristian had missed that,” she says. “It was horrible.”

Because Cody and Jakob were young when their father died, Rachel has remained fiercely dedicated to keeping Kristian’s memory alive. “I work very hard to make sure that he’s part of our day, still,” she says.

It’s something Kristian gave thought to as well. Just after he was diagnosed, Kristian started a blog that is now filled with reflections, stories, triumphs and fears. “It was one of his dying wishes that we would get his blog published so that we had something tangible for the children to have growing up,” Rachel says, holding up a book. “I now have this that the boys can sit down and read, and they can find out exactly how Daddy felt at every, single point in his journey.”

As for Rachel, the mother of two has begun a new chapter in her own journey. During an appearance she made on New Zealand television discussing the book, a man named Richard saw her and reached out. The two began communicating and, eventually, dating.

“He turned out to be the most incredible man,” Rachel says. “In January of this year, we got married. He has a daughter that’s in between the ages of my children, so between us, we have a 5-year-old, a 6-year-old and a 7-year-old.”

Cody and Jakob enjoy their stepdad. “The boys think the world of Richard. He’s a big kid, really,” Rachel says. “He’s just fantastic.”

As the children continue to grow and change each day, Rachel believes Kristian is proud and happy to see their lives continue with love and joy. “I honestly do think that Kristian is watching over us,” she says. “I honestly do think he gets these windows into our lives and gets to see what’s happening. [He’s] taking care of us.”

“Oprah: Where Are They Now?” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.

The Sari Shop Widow

The Sari Shop Widow


Pungent curry. sweet fried onions. incense. colorful beads. lush fabrics. Shobhan Bantwal’s compelling new novel is set on the streets of Edison, New Jersey’s Little India, where a young businesswoman rediscovers the magic of love and family. Since becoming a widow at age twenty-seven, Anjali Kapadia has devoted herself to transforming her parents’ sari shop into a chic boutique, brimming with exquisite jewelry and clothing. Now, ten years later, it stands out like a proud maharani amid Edison’s bustling Little India. But when Anjali learns the shop is on the brink of bankruptcy, she feels her world unraveling. To the rescue comes Anjali’s wealthy, dictatorial Uncle Jeevan and his business partner, Rishi Shah-a mysterious Londoner, complete with British accent, cool gray eyes, and skin so fair it makes it hard to believe he’s Indian. Rishi’s cool, foreign demeanor triggers distrust in Anjali and her mother. But for Anjali, he also stirs something else, a powerful attraction she hasn’t felt in a decade. And the feeling is mutual. Love disappointed Anjali once before and she’s vowed to live without it-though Rishi is slowly melting her resolve and, as the shop regains its footing, gaining her trust. But when a secret from Rishi’s past is revealed, Anjali must turn to her family and her strong cultural upbringing to guide her in finding the truth. Praise for Shobhan Bantwal and her novels. “Compelling and memorable.” -Mary Jo Putney on The Forbidden Daughter “Vivid, rich. expertly portrays a young woman caught between love and duty, hope and despair.” -Anjali Banerjee on The Dowry Bride “Splendidly depicts passion, brutality, and cultures in conflict.”-Dorothy Garlock on The Dowry Bride”The Dowry Bride is an eye-opener to the challenges many Indian women face in a culture few foreigners comprehend. -ArmchairInterviews.com, 4 stars on The Dowry Bride “A beautifully written book. Wonderful, vivid, and worth read
