Good Luck to her. Hope those lungs aren't wasted. Somebody died. Sad.

This girl wound up getting 2 transplants.

The first set of lungs were from an adult. Someone died. Sad. I hope they donated other organs that saved a life. I also hope their passing was peacefull and not based on their donor status as with this second set of lungs/donor.

People were saying the success rate was very poor in kids and the transplant system was designed to save the most lives. One adult lost a chance at a set of lungs.

Peace
