Hannah Warren was born without a trachea. She was a pioneer in stem cell technology, having successfully received a windpipe grown from her own stem cells. She was the central figure in a powerful story concerning the morality, validity and efficacy of regenerative medicine. As a tribute to the courage of Hannah and the vision of her family, AACT is dedicating its non-profit awareness and educational efforts to her memory.
Watch A Leap of Faith: A Meredith Vieira special on the future of regenerative medicine. Meet Hannah and a small team of courageous and compassionate doctors who cared enough to give her the only chance she had to live.
