Woman Living Without A "HEART" In Britain

The woman in the picture with a smile is Salwa Hussein, a woman who lives in Britain.  She is the second woman without a heart in the world, and her life has changed drastically since she underwent a surgery that ended with her living without a heart inside her body, a rare case in the world, as she carries her artificial heart in a bag with her wherever she goes.  
The British newspaper "Daily Mail" reported that Salwa Hussein, aged 39, is the only one who lives in this medical way in Britain.  The bag carries a device with two batteries weighing 6.8 kg, which is an electric motor and a pump to push the air.
The batteries push the air into a plastic bag in the patient's chest through tubes, in order to allow blood circulation in the body. 
May she always stay healthy and active with that smile on her face.
