Hi,
I am sorry to hear of the recurrence of your mother's lung cancer.
Lung transplant is not indicated for treatment of lung cancer patients.
Most lungs used for transplantations are harvested from brain dead donors, although trials involving living donors are also ongoing.
Your mother's oncologist may plan a second-line chemotherapy for her.
