The woman, named as Penny by her friend Kelsey on photo sharing website Imgur, can be seen wearing a medical mask as she grips what appears to be her old heart.

'Penny' now has a new fully-functioning heart following the operation, her friend revealed on the site.

Posting the image of Penny on Imgur, Kelsey said: "[Penny] is holding her own heart. She has survived cancer and crippling heart failure and never lost hope."
