 Lady Dies After 11 Years of Heart Transplant
A heart transplant patient, Hannah Pudsey, was unable to realize her dream of getting married to boyfriend, Kevin Preston, as she fell ill just after she had ordered her wedding dress and made arrangements for her wedding.

This 24 year old from East Yorkshire had undergone a heart transplant 11 years ago.

Just a week back, Hannah had complained of stomach ache and extreme uneasiness. She collapsed a day after and her heart simply stopped beating. The medical staff tried their best to revive her heart, but it was all in vain.

Hannah's mother Ros said: 'Hannah was feeling sick, and being sick, and also had a bit of stomach ache, so the local surgery arranged for her to go to the infirmary. It was not a life or death situation, but because Hannah was a transplant patient, it was felt she would be better in hospital to keep an eye on the situation. By late afternoon, I could see she was deteriorating, but we never expected her to die. We are all devastated. It is really heartbreaking that Hannah and Kevin will not see their wedding day."
