PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A six-month hospitalization is about to end for a 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl whose need for new lungs sparked a national debate on how transplant recipients are prioritized.
Sarah Murnaghan's mother posted a message on Facebook on Monday that says they are going home from the Children's Hospital of Pennsylvania.
Sarah received two sets of lungs this summer as she struggles with the effects of end-stage cystic fibrosis.
There are plans to have her parents speak with reporters on Tuesday.
