TORONTO - A beaming Helene Campbell made an Internet appearance on the "The Ellen Show" today, winning a promise for an in-studio appearance as soon as she's well enough to fly.
TV celebrity Ellen DeGeneres expressed amazement at how well Campbell looked just seven weeks after her double-lung transplant in Toronto.
Campbell, 21, of Ottawa, thanked DeGeneres via the Skype appearance for her support for organ donations.
She also showed clips of herself dancing in various places as evidence of her remarkable recovery.
Campbell's dramatic journey from near death to a return to health after her life-saving transplant April 6 has captured attention around the world.
The young woman's campaign is credited with a significant increase in people willing to donate their organs.
