A TED talk from the archives, but this is one you don't want to miss!  An apocalyptic moment when an opera soprano loses her lungs, only to come back to singing only one year later!  

She doesn't talk about it in the presentation, but I wonder how much better off she was in recovery because of her desire to exercise her lungs for singing?  Not only did music motivate her to survive and live, but it may have saved her life by giving her new lungs the power to live in a new body!  

Stay on until the end when she sings.  You won't be disappointed!
