Local Hero Donates 2 Appendixes

In a groundbreaking act of selflessness, Bendigo resident and local hero Frank McAllister made medical history last Tuesday by donating not one but two appendixes to the Bendigo General Hospital. The surgery, hailed as a marvel of modern medicine, marks the first-ever double appendix transplant in the Southern Hemisphere.

“I’ve always been a giver,” McAllister quipped from his hospital bed, his trademark bushy moustache twitching with humility. “When I heard they were running low on these little fellas, I knew I had to step up.”

The operation, led by Dr. Penelope Hawthorne, took over twelve hours and involved a team of thirty medical specialists, all eager to witness medical history. “Mr. McAllister’s generosity will save lives and inspire others to consider their spare parts,” remarked Dr. Hawthorne.

McAllister remains humble about his newfound fame. “I’m just happy to help,” he said, adjusting his Banjo Player Monthly magazine. “Maybe next time, I’ll donate a spleen or two.”

With his extraordinary generosity, Frank McAllister has saved lives and reminded us that heroes come in all shapes, sizes, and spare body parts. Bendigo and the world salute you, Frank.
