MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WZDX) A Madison County teenager suffering from Cystic Fibrosis finally received the double lung transplant he needed.
Gerald McQueen found out he had CF at age 1, ever since he's been waiting for his lungs to deteriorate enough to be added to a transplant list.
A few weeks ago, Gerald and his family held a fundraiser to off-set the cost of the expensive procedure.
Gerald had his surgery in St. Louis yesterday and his now breathing with his new lungs. He'll have at least a year to fully recover.
