Lurie Doctor Dresses as Chewbacca To Tell Boy he's Getting a new Heart

When 15-year-old Austin Eggleston from Pontiac, Illinois was placed on a heart transplant list, his doctor made him a deal. Dr. Phillip Thrush promised Austin - a huge Star Wars fan - that when a heart became available, he would deliver the news wearing a Chewbacca costume.

Austin's family said Monday he has already received the new heart and is still recovering from the transplant surgery.
