woman dies smoker lungs transplant

Awful.

Why do people have to smoke? What's the point? It hurts you AND it hurts others.

For instance, this woman had cystic fibrosis and died after getting a lung transplant from a smoker. That didn't need to happen. Jennifer Wederell had been on the waiting list for it for 18 months when in April 2011, she was told there was finally a match.

She did not know and was not told the donor was a smoker.
