Sarah Murnaghan, Lung Recipient, Turns 11


Fox 29:

Sarah Murnaghan is celebrating a major milestone.

She turns 11 years old today!

This is a day her family has fought for over the past several months.  They wanted Sarah to celebrate this big day and, thankfully, Sarah is on the mend and with family, celebrating.

Murnaghan, you’ll remember, is the CHOP patient who has cystic fibrosis who needed a lung transplant. Her family challenged a federal ban on transplanting adult lungs into children her age. The challenge succeeded, Murnaghan received her lungs, and it appears her recovery continues apace.
