Charity Tillemann-Dick: Singing after a double lung transplant
18:05 · Filmed October 2010 at TEDMED 2010 · Subtitles available in 28 languages

You'll never sing again, said her doctor. But in a story from the very edge of medical possibility, operatic soprano Charity Tillemann-Dick tells a double story of survival — of her body, from a double lung transplant, and of her spirit, fueled by an unwavering will to sing. A powerful story from TEDMED 2010.
