I saw this

not sure that dying of cancer instead of cyctic fybrosis was really any worse. Whilst the death is sad, I don't really get what the family think should have been different. As there weren't any non-smoker donor lungs, the woman would have died soon anyway. I reckon they got a bit more time with her. But maybe I'm worng.

Kam - I agree

it's tragic. Being offered the gift of life and then have it tragically shot down in flames by being given cancer ridden lungs is very sad. As Mr Nichols says though, I doubt she had little choice.
