PAULA ZAHN, CNN ANCHOR: We are hoping to take a news conference live out of Durham, North Carolina, where we will be brought up to date on Jesica Santillan, who is the young woman who was given a heart and lung transplant. Unfortunately, though, her blood type did not match the blood type of the organs that were implanted into her.
Now, she needs a re-transplant. We are told that someone has specifically donated a set of organs that are a match for her, and we will be brought up to date on all of this at news conference time. We'll cover it live.
