Michael Pardue recovers from double lung transplant

By Greg Summers

From Day One, Michael Pardue’s life has been tough.

He was born with cystic fibrosis, an inherited chronic terminal disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 people in the United States.

Michael underwent a double lung transplant during eight hours of surgery at the University of North Carolina Hospitals in Chapel Hill on Oct. 1.
