There’s a woman named Jennifer Jones who was born with cystic fibrosis, It is a chronic hereditary illness that creates a dense thick buildup of phlegm in the lungs, pancreas, and several other organs.
It can result in constant lung infections and making breathing more difficult over time.
Since that day, the lung function of Jones has collapsed abruptly, dropping down at 10.8 percent functionality in October 2018.
Luckily, she was on the list of a lung transplant, and she found a match by that moment.
Jones had surgery that month at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and watching her with her fresh lungs and taking her very first breath of air is an amazing sight to look into.
“I was frightened at first,” said the 40-year-old. She also said that she could not breathe comfortably before.
“And now it’s like, ‘ Oh, my god, I manage to breathe! I can still breathe and I’m still breathing in much air, ‘ and it was unfathomable.
Today Jones is surviving with a 93 percent pulmonary function, and it’s all due to the individual who was chosen to be a donor.
Let’s hear her message for the donor.
That’s precisely why it is important to be enrolled as an organ donor. If our death can offer a fresh life to somebody, let’s be willing to take that chance!
