Lungs Transplant – level 1

19-10-2016 07:00

This news is about a little girl. She is from Britain. She is very ill. She cannot breathe well. She is always in hospital. She needs new lungs.

This is a problem. It can take years to find a good donor for her. However, she is lucky. Her match comes in days.

The operation is hard. Her lungs are very small.

The operation goes well. She is fine now. She is home and happy.

Difficult words: need (if you need something, it is very good to have it), lungs (the organ which is for getting air in your body), donor (somebody who can give you his or her organ), match (things that match work well together).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
