Double Lung Transplant Patient on Waiting List Reaches Out to Ellen DeGeneres for Awareness


In 2012, alungstory’s channel posted this video on her youtube channel, trying to reach the comedian and TV presenter, Ellen DeGeneres. Hélène Campbell is a young girl who, at the time of the video, was waiting on a transplant list to get the double lung transplant that could save her life.

Trying to raise awareness for more people to donate organs, she decided to record a video to reach DeGeneres. And she did it. After being featured on The Ellen Show, Hélène finally got her double transplant and Ellen wanted to know her health status update. So they skyped. In the video below, from Ottawa Citizen, 2013, you can watch their skype call, where Ellen got to know how the organ receiver was doing.
