Last year, Jessica Manning was given two years to live. She was born with congenital heart disease, and six different heart conditions. She also needed a liver transplant - which aren't easy to come by
"It needs to fit like a puzzle piece," she said last year on The Project.
But on Friday night's episode of The Project, Ms Manning was back - she got the liver she needed. But, after a 20 hour surgery, and four weeks later, she suffered a cardiac arrest.

However, six months on, she's thriving.
After organising a walk up One Tree Hill, and succeeding, she had a beautiful message for her donor.
"Now this is for my donor," she said through tears
"My priorities weren't about starting uni, finding a job, partying with my friends or saving for a house - it was just about being able to wake up the next morning, and living another day," she continued.
"Donor, wherever you are, I hope you're dancing in the sky, and I hope I'm making you proud."
