Lungs Transplant – level 2

Lungs Transplant – level 2

19-10-2016 07:00

A baby girl from Britain was seriously ill in her first month of life. She was really small and sick. She had problems breathing and she was always in hospital.

Today, she is a healthy child thanks to a new pair of lungs. Doctors transplanted them when she was just five months old.

Usually, children can wait for years for a donor. In some cases, the donor never comes, but this girl was lucky – her match came within days. The operation was not easy because the lungs were so small.

The girl is now home, happy and healthy, but her parents know that for their baby to live, other parents lost their child.

Difficult words: transplant (take an organ and put it into another body), donor (a person whose organ is used for transplantation), match (a donor match is a person whose lungs are good for her).
