Perhaps a Happy Ending for Dying 10-year old
This story has a personal connection. The near fatal story of ten-year old Sarah Murnaghan might have a hopeful ending, instead of an agonizing death caused by her end stage cystic fibrosis.
The hope came Wednesday afternoon after a federal judge ruled that young Sarah can now be included to an adult donor list that she was excluded from because of her under 12 age. The good news is the judge granted a restraining order that could save the life of this child. Many are wondering why a child would be excluded from the adult donor list in the first place. Truth is, children can receive adult organs. It’s better for smaller patients to receive smaller organs.
Today, 115,000 children, men and women need life saving organ transplants. The reason, this story is personal is because I am an organ donor. Are you? Sarah’s little life depends on your answer!
