Hélène Campbell says even though her life was at risk during a double-lung transplant, she was at peace knowing her story was shared to help raise awareness about organ donation.

The Ottawa woman sat down with CBC News for a one-on-one interview looking back on a year that changed her life.

Campbell underwent a major double-lung transplant surgery in a Toronto hospital and survived, but she continues to adjust to her new set of lungs.
