Graham and Tara Smith at the blessing of their marriage (second time). Transplant survivor Tara Smith has renewed her marriage vows in a full ceremony - two years after a 'death-bed wedding' when she had just a 50 per cent chance of living. See MASONS story MNWED. Tara, 40, had cystic fibrosis and was told her chance of surviving for the next two years were just 1 in 2 without a double lung transplant. She decided to marry husband Graham, 47, after eight years together while they still had time. They had a small ceremony in June 2013 with just six people because Tara didn't know until the morning of the day if she would be well enough to go to the church. She struggled to walk down the small aisle hooked up to her IV drip and oxygen pack. Four months later she was told that a donor had been found and underwent the six-hour transplant at Harefield Hospital in Middlesex. Since then she has made a full recovery and celebrated by renewing her wedding vows - this time in front of 250 friends and family at St Mildred's Church in Tenterden, Kent.
