First lung transplant of 2008
at Toronto General Hospital

Congratulations and best wishes to Judy Penner, whose double-lung transplant January 1st was the first at Toronto General Hospital this year. Judy and her husband Dan have been big supporters of the Lung Transplant Golf Tournament to raise money for lung transplant research. Thanks to Kim Cassar, Judy's friend and herself a double-lung recipient, for providing this news.

Toronto General Hospital is the world's leading lung transplant center with world-class state-of-the-art facilities and research laboratories. The world's first successful lung transplants were done at Toronto General and it continues to be a pioneer by raising the bar in both transplantation and research. Director of the lung transplant program Dr. Shaf Keshavjee and his team performed 100 lung transplants at TGH in 2007.
