Woman with Cystic Fibrosis Gets Double Lung Transplant and Dream Wedding

She finally got her dream wedding

Katelyn had to delay planning her dream wedding, as her transplant coordinator told her that she should focus on her recovery. Finally, one year after undergoing surgery, on March 18th of 2017, Katelyn got her fairytale wedding and married her prince charming. Most recently, the couple have moved back to Kansas, where they have started a new chapter in their lives as husband and wife. Katelyn continues to take 60-70 pills per day, but she no longer has to spend her days undergoing treatment. “Imagine having an extra five hours of free time now. I can sleep in. I don’t have to wake up and spend an hour and a half on a machine,” she said.
