Margaret was also injured after the plane crash. This battle of staying clean, and fighting gangrene with other infections was a challenge for Margaret. When Margaret came out of the wreckage of the Gremlin Special, “both legs had deep burns, and her right hand was cut and bloody. The left side of her face was blistered from the heat” (Zuckoff 60).

The family was transferred from their local hospital in Hamilton to department 6A—the transplant wing—in SickKids hospital in Toronto.

We sat patiently waiting to hear from the doctor. When the doctor finally came in, he asked if the patient had had a recent major heart attack and when we replied that he had not, he seemed not to believe us. His heart valve had disintegrated and all of his blood had begun to rush backwards causing all of his other major organs to shut down on him.

In the movie, there was limited opportunity and time to have human trials. In 1796, Edward Jenner tested the vaccine for smallpox similarly to the CDC researcher in Contagion, 1:15:41. The CDC researcher even mentions the smallpox vaccination event to her ailing father with the infection who is also a doctor, 1:19:40. Jenner isolated cowpox from dairy maids and used cowpox as a vaccine for smallpox (Smallpox, 2011). He first vaccinated a child from his neighborhood and then exposed that child to smallpox (Smallpox, 2011).
