Update on double lung transplant recipient Coen Ashton

MARYBOROUGH'S Coen Ashton is continuing to undergo treatment in Melbourne after he started experiencing kidney problems.

The double lung transplant recipient had been battling illness in Brisbane hospitals for weeks until the decision was made to take him to Melbourne to continue his treatment at the Alfred Hospital.

The 19-year-old public speaker underwent the double lung transplant in 2012, but had had some health setbacks in recent times, including the beginning of rejection in his lungs, which has been treated several times.
