Manuel Martinez is Christy Martinez's father, a patient of Three Rivers Medical Center. Dr. Andy Yablonski talks to Manuel and Christy about the transplant and explains the risks. Without the transplant, she will die in a few weeks. With the transplant, the lungs may not work and she could die during the surgery. Her father does not like the option, but Christy reminds him she is an adult and she gives her permission to proceed. Maunuel is by his daughter's side after the transplant.
