A teenager has made a heartfelt plea for donors for the double lung transplant she so desperately needs. Nineteen-year-old Holly Pereira from Sussex has cystic fibrosis - a disease which clogs the lungs and digestive system, making it hard to breathe and eat. Without those new lungs, she has only a few years left to live. So Holly has posted an emotional video on the web, urging people to sign up to the organ donor register.
