A Long Island woman who lost her chance for a heart transplant is asking to be released from jail.

The Daily News is reporting that Diana Cloud's lawyer will ask a judge to release her into a hospice care.

The 47-year-old was serving a 15-month sentence for shoplifting when a judge released her so she could get a heart transplant.

However, she was denied the transplant because she did not quit smoking.

Now, her lawyer says she has only weeks to live.
