A Lung Story – help Hélène breathe – A Lung Story Home

At 20 years old, Hélène suddenly required a double lung transplant. Hélène, diagnosed in September 2011 with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), was placed on the transplant list. Lung transplants are time critical. So Hélène and her mom, Manon, had to leave the rest of the family in Ottawa and move to Toronto. There, they waited to receive notice that a compatible set of lungs had become available.

Hélène received her new lungs on April 6th, Good Friday, 2012.

This website, its accompanying Blog, plus @alungstory on Twitter, a Flickr photostream, and alungstory on Facebook document Hélène’s journey to breathing normally again.

Please share Hélène’s story with your friends using these or other social networks …

… and Please keep tweeting #BeAnOrganDonor and #GiveBlood !
