|After getting ‘new lungs,’ Rice woman shares woes of smoking, vaping|
|In 2017, Darlene Albrecht was told she had a year to live. The Rice woman was diagnosed years earlier with a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and her lungs were barely functioning.|
More than a year after her double lung transplant, and nearing the World Health Organization’s "World No Tobacco Day" on May 31, Albrecht shared her story in hopes of raising awareness about the dangers of smoking and vaping as well as the importance of being an organ donor.
“I smoked that cigarette, and someone died to save me,” she said.
