Just over a year ago Sharee McPhail, of Moser Avenue, Swain House , Bradford, was desperately ill and even the simplest of tasks such as washing her hair or cooking a meal were impossible for her.
Sharee, 28, was born with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a genetic disease which progressively damages the lungs. By the end of 2010 her lungs were so badly affected she was told that she would die without a double lung transplant.
In August 2011 she received a phone call that saved her life. She had a transplant at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle, receiving the lungs of a 55-year-old woman in an eight-hour operation.
