An Oregon widower is fulfilling his wife's dying wish, thanks to strangers with a big heart -- and breast milk.

Six months after Alex Green's wife gave birth to their son Brody, she died. But before she passed, Green's wife asked him to find a way to continue breastfeeding Brody.

Green couldn't find donors in his community so he turned to social media. So many people responded and donated that Green believes he now has enough breast milk to feed Brody until his first birthday.

"I'm no hero in this situation. I think people donating their time and breast milk are the ones who should be acknowledged," Green said.
