Robert R Newark Beth Israel Lung Transplant Recipient Shares His Story

“I promised her [granddaughter] that I would make her 6th birthday party and I did. And here it is 5 years later and I'm still here, thanks to the hospital, doctors and everybody else.”

We recently caught up with Robert Regan, Newark Beth Israel Medical Center lung transplant recipient and proud grandfather. He was here at the Advanced Lung Disease and Transplant Program for a follow-up appointment, celebrating the 5-year anniversary of his double-lung transplant. We were honored to speak with him a few minutes about his experience, his deep connection with our lung transplant team and how his life has changed for the better since his life-saving lung transplant surgery.

Congratulations Robert!
