The 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl whose efforts to qualify for a transplant drew public debate over how organ donation should be done is getting a new lung.

A spokeswoman for Sarah Murnaghan’s family said that Murnaghan, who suffers from severe cystic fibrosis, is receiving the transplant Wednesday.

The decision came just days after a federal judge granted her family’s request to suspend a rule that prevented her from getting an adult lung.

Murnaghan’s mother, Janet, says the family is “overwhelmed with emotions” and thanks all her supporters. She says, “Today is the start of Sarah’s new beginning and new life.”
