Hannah Warren, 2, lies in bed in a post-op room at the Children's Hospital of Illinois in Peoria, after having received a new windpipe in a landmark transplant operation on April 9, 2013. Hannah was born in South Korea without a windpipe but received a new one made from her own stem cells. She is the youngest patient ever to get the experimental treatment. Doctors announced Tuesday, April 30, 2013 she is recovering and likely will lead a normal life. (AP Photo/OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, Jim Carlson)
