Jennifer even postponed her wedding for two years while waiting for the new lungs.
Jennifer finally got her new lungs and the transplant surgery was a success. But in August she passed away, one year after getting married, from lung cancer.
Jennifer Wederell (27) was not told before the operation that her new lungs had come from a 20-cigarettes-a-day smoker.
“Had she know that she would have never agreed to the transplant,” Jennifer’s mourning husband David told the Daily Mail.
A few months after the transplant Jennifer was diagnosed with lung cancer. It was only then that she was told her new lungs had belonged to a smoker.
David Wederell (28) has begun an internet campaign together with Jennifer’s parents to get none-smokers to donate their lungs when they pass away.
Almost 40 per cent of lungs used in during lung transplants come from donors who have smoked.
