  • Information about double lung transplants

    Jade is staying with her dad, Dean, in Walford while she recovers from her double lung transplant.

    Some people with cystic fibrosis may need a transplant if standard treatments are no longer working as well as they should, and we know that the process, operation and recovery can be tough.

    If you have been affected by Jade’s storyline, please reach out to our Helpline if you need to talk. If you have any concerns or questions about your own health or transplant, please talk to your CF team. 

    We provide support for people before and after transplants.
