Kirstie was told that she had around six months to live and she had to make a decision to either sit and wait for a transplant call to come or to live her life. With only three and a bit weeks till the big day, Kirstie excitedly tries on her wedding dress and reflects on the chances of survival when you are waiting for a lung transplant in the UK.
