SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A special Polynesian dance was held outside of the UC San Diego Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center Thursday to honor a double lung transplant patient.

Siaosi Veimau was released Thursday after spending three weeks in the hospital.

He underwent a successful double lung transplant after being diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis several months ago.

A benefit to help pay for Siaosi's medical expenses will be held on July 19 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Harry Griffen Regional Park Amphitheater in La Mesa.
