My name is Daniella and I was born with Alveolar Microlithiasis. At the age of 31, I was advised that I would need a double-lung transplant. To say I was scared would be putting it mildly, but once I met Dr. Ferraro I was reassured about the procedure, and he gave me confidence to go ahead. In December of 2016, at the age of 33 I received my double-lung transplant.

I now have a second chance at life which could not of been possible without the donor, Dr.Ferraro and the entire transplant team. I will forever be greatful.

Thank you!

Daniella Panetta
