I watched this documentary on YouTube a couple months ago - very emotional, but a great story.

I saw this too Carly, thanks for posting. The title of her documentary is "Love on the Transplant List". It aired in the BBC but not in the states. For some reason I never even thought of looking for it on youtube! I'm glad TLC is airing her story, however, I'm not sure if it is the same documentary or their own production. TLC is calling it "Breathless Bride: Dying to Live". I have been following Kirstie's blog for some time now and it is quite a remarkable story. She did receive lungs after the wedding, just in the nick of time. She is doing well now! If anyone is interested her blog is at: http://kirstie-2ndchanceatlife.blogspot.com/ Should be interesting to watch the story on TLC! Autumn

It's already on YouTube under the name that it was on BBC- Love on the Transplant List. It's really good IMHO.

www.topdocumentaryfilms.com is a great place to find stuff like this. Especially stuff from the BBC. It never fails to amaze me that the BBC is running educational documentaries in primetime, while we mindlessly watch American Idol and The Bachelor. The documentaries we do get in this country are either stupid or wild speculation (Finding Bigfoot?).

Thanks for the information, my friends and family are always asking for more information on my son's condition. I try to forward them to as many as these projects and televisions events as possible.

I just got done watching it. The most difficult documentary I have ever had to watch, a few times I thought I was going to need to turn it off. Its does have a happy ending, but it did tell the TRUTH about CF! Hopefully it will help funding the pipeline for research dollars and for the Organ Donors!!! When people aren't organ donors, two people die instead of one.

Well done docu. I wish I could sit down all my loved ones and watch it with them-I think they'd understand what Cf is much better.I really related to the end when Kirstie says she spent so much time trying to convince people around her that she really was sick-she forgot how sick she actually was.
I saw a great deal of myself in Kirstie. Hubby watched it with me. It was hard to get through at times, but very balanced and well done. For me the most emotional parts were seeing how devoted her fiance was, and seeing just how passionate he was for her. It reminded me of what my own hubby has gone through. (not to that extent of course)
She looked amazing post-transplant! I'm so happy for them and wish them all the best.

I just couldn't watch it. Caitlin (drdanika) recorded it and tried to watch it the next morning but once I heard the coughing and saw the hospital room I made her turn it off. I watched 65 red roses and it was just too much. I still have images of her lung transplant stuck in my head and how clogged with mucus her lungs were when they removed them. I know its a reality I'll have to one day deal with but I just try to push it to the back of my mind.
