The Belfast Telegraph once again featured Charlene, after it’s sister paper the Sunday Life covered her story the week before. A huge response was recievied from that publicity – so the Tele wanted to do a follow up!
A jubilant Charlene Barr has been given the green light for her life-saving double lung transplant.

Her deteriorating health over the past year caused her weight to plummet to just five stone five lbs.
