A young woman got a second life after life after a stranger gave her lungs to her.

Stephanie Wilson, 26, was connected to life support at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne when she fainted in December 2017 from an uncontrollable cough shower.

& # 39; I only remember being in the ward and coughing up all that blood, and then coughing up all that blood in the elevator, and they stopped the elevator until I could settle down, & # 39; told Yahoo News.

Wilson was at the top of the national list for transplants for a horrible three weeks before a suitable donor was found.

& # 39; A family saved my life – I just wouldn't be here if it weren't for them & # 39 ;, Wilson said.

Mrs. Wilson has been living with idiopathic primary pulmonary hypertension (IPAH) since her childhood.

The condition causes high blood pressure in the arteries in the lungs and heart.

Her brother had died of the condition and in a matter of years Mrs. Wilson was unable to do daily activities such as swimming and walking.

She said she would walk a few meters before she had to stop to breathe and fight the overwhelming feeling that she would faint.

Wilson soon had to cut back on how often she could work and eventually fell back to half a day.

Then she lost a friend in 2017 while waiting for a heart transplant.

Add the painkillers her doctors told her to numb the pain of her condition, Mrs. Wilson said it was a forgettable year.

So when she was almost hospitalized on her deathbed and coughed up blood, Wilson anticipated the worst.

Although her saving grace was in an anonymous organ donor, she has never met, but is eternally grateful for it.

Since her recovery, Wilson has checked everything she ever wanted to do, but was unable to do because of her condition.

That included something small like a trip to the beach and a swim in the water – something she avoided because of her shortness of breath.

& # 39; It was the most bizarre feeling – it was just like things under your feet, but then it was so peaceful, & # 39; she said.
