10-year-old girl finally gets lung transplant after judge’s order

A sick Pennsylvania girl is getting the lung transplant she so desperately needs.

Ten-year-old Sarah Murnaghan has cystic fibrosis.

There was a Pennsylvania law that made her ineligible for an adult lung transplant because she was under 12.

Last week a judge waived that rule and today a donor was found.

She went in for surgery for a double lung transplant this morning.  On Facebook, Sarah’s mother asked for prayers for the donor who she called “her hero.”
