A woman’s life has been transformed after having a double lung transplant.
Kirsty Gedes, 28, who was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when she was nine months old, received the organs in 2009.
The make-up artist from Lanarkshire has since managed to scale Ben Nevis in Scotland.
She said: 'There isn’t a single day goes by that I don’t think of, and thank, my donor ... not one. That person gave me my life back.
'This person signed a piece of paper and saved me. When I got the call about the transplant in November 2009, the day after my birthday, I said that nothing will ever top it. It’s an amazing gift.
