Lupus
 
Lupus(correct me if I'm wrong) is a disease that essentialy makes your body allergic to itself-Well, thats how I think of it. Unlike AIDS your body starts attacking itself like it would to germs. (again, correct me if I'm wrong)

One of my teacher's had a similar problem. She had a severe infection in her lungs and her body them could not recognize it so her body "voted it off the island" and cut off all blood flow, oxygen, energy, etc. She lived on a resparater for many years and finally got a lung transplant and is now healthy and has TWO working lungs.

lupus affects more then just one part of your body and I don't think just having a transplant would do much good:(
