Imogen's transplant battle

Reporter: Clare Brady

You don't know you have it good until you suck in a breath of air, and it doesn't do you any good.

When you realise it isn't enough to keep your lungs, heart or brain functioning. And you could die, unless you have a lung transplant.

In Australia, transplants are more difficult than they appear.

As a nation, we're way down the world scale for organ donation. And that really mattered to a little Queensland girl called Imogen.

Imogen travelled to Melbourne and into medical history as the first child to receive lungs, cut down to size from an adult.
