A transplant patient from Honiton is undergoing a second lung transplant.
Kirstie Tancock, who we featured earlier this year getting people to sign up to the donor register, has cystic fibrosis.
She had surgery in 2011 but her body has rejected the new organs.
She's been told she only has two weeks to live but today's operation could save her life.
Two friends from Devon have celebrated their first healthy Christmas since surviving a deadly lung disease.
Kirstie Tancock, who just a year ago had a double lung transplant, is about to take on a 180 mile charity bike ride.
