Hélène's mother Manon posted this message on their blog today. "Thank you everyone for your best wishes for Hélène! We are so appreciative of your support, encouragements and prayers for Hélène and our family. You will be glad to hear that Hélène is now back at her “home away from home in Toronto” and that she’s feeling well. Many tests were done and we are now waiting for results in order for the team to make adjustments to her medication treatment. For the first time since surgery, and especially for the past few nights, Hélène is able to have some great deep sleep ... YAY!!". Read the complete update at alungstory.
Hélène was diagnosed with IPF or Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis last October and received her double-lung transplant April 6, 2012. Her discharge date was Friday, May 4, 2012 but she was re-admitted last Sunday with shortness of breath. She gained world-wide awareness for organ and tissue donation when Justin Bieber and Ellen DeGeneres responded to her twitter campaign.
