Triple Organ Transplant Recipient Celebrates Birthday

ATLANTA (WAOK) – Georgia’s first ever triple organ transplant recipient is marking a birthday that many didn’t think she would live to see.
Doctors at Emory Hospital in Atlanta were on hand over the weekend to help celebrate as Stephanie Lindstrom turned 38.
The event is a sign that she can now resume some degree of normal activity.
The milestone comes just five months after the mother of two got a new heart, liver and kidney.
It’s an operation that’s only been performed a half-dozen times in the U.S. since 2009.
