In the early hours of May 24th, Jack Dykinga underwent a double lung transplant at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. We are very pleased to report that the procedure was an outstanding success, and Jack has since been making excellent progress while recovering in the hospital. The anonymous donor of Jack’s new lungs appears to have been exceptionally fit, as Jack’s lung function was recently tested at 100%. Jack will soon leave the hospital to continue his recovery in more hospitable surroundings, and is expected to complete his recovery within the next two or three months.  Jack has expressed repeatedly his profound and heartfelt thankfulness to all the friends, family, fans, and medical team who have contributed to his wellbeing through this process. He is looking forward to making the most of this gift of a second chance and a full life.
