And when all was seemingly lost, Michelle did not embrace death. Read on!
Michelle Harris is an 18-year-old high school student from Chicago.
It all seemed like her world was about to crumble. If the treatment didn't work well, she would not be able to get a lung transplant
Her recovery was surprising because her lung disease was truly horrible and she almost died.
Once the doctors saw the condition Michelle was in, they immediately knew that she was perfect for the treatment they could give.
During this period, she did not lose hope and she was always optimistic.
This was also part of her therapy.
