PHILADELPHIA — Sarah Murnaghan, a 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl with cystic fibrosis whose family fought to have her prioritized for adult organs, has successfully undergone lung transplant surgery, her family told CNN on Wednesday.

“God is great! He moved the mountain! Sarah got THE CALL,” a statement on her Facebook page said. “Please pray for Sarah’s donor, her HERO, who has given her the gift of life.”

The parents’ push for an organ transplant policy change has thrust the issue of who gets donated organs into the national spotlight.
