HOUSTON, TX (KTRE) - Jasper County Deputy Glenn Blank is home after undergoing a double-lung transplant just over two weeks ago.

Blank had been fighting for his life since Dec. 18 after he suffered lung failure stemming from chemotherapy treatment at a young age.

His coordinator put him on an emergency donor list and he learned of a matched lung for him in just 24 hours.

Blank returned home on Thursday, according to his wife, Mandi.
