Remember the 10 year old that was initially denied the right to a lung transplant because of Obamacare? The court ordered her on the list and now she’s going to get one!
A lung transplant is being performed on Sarah Murnaghan, a 10-year-old girl whose family sued to get her added to an adult lung waiting list.
Family spokesperson Tracy Simon confirmed the transplant was taking place Wednesday to CBS News.
"We are overwhelmed with emotions!!!!" Murnaghan’s mother Janet wrote on her Facebook page Wednesday. "Thank you to all of you for the unending support."
Sarah is being treated at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Janet told CBS News Wednesday that the family received a call Tuesday night from the hospital telling her there was a match for Sarah.
What is the take-away? Let’s trust doctors to take care of our health — not government bureaucrats.
