Lung Transplant Patient Stories

George: Double Lung Transplant Recipient

George describes his double lung transplant at Penn Transplant Institute as a life-changing event. He talks about the professional, personal and kind care he received at the Penn Transplant Institute and the enormous impact his lung transplant has had on his life. He is now completely independent and has even returned to work full-time. There's nothing he can't do.

George says that when he found out how sick he was, he says, "There was no place else I'd go but Penn and I don't regret one moment of that."

The video was filmed at the annual Dash for Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness, a run/walk that George participated in to honor organ and tissue donors, celebrate organ and tissue recipients and recognize those who continue to wait for a life-saving transplant.
