U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the following statement after being informed by the family that a donor lung has been found for 10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan.

“I am deeply grateful to the organ donor and his or her family for the potentially life-saving gift to Sarah.”

“Now that a suitable donor has been found, a prayer would help, too – a prayer Sarah’s body accepts the new organ the way doctors believe it can.”

“The judge gave Sarah a chance to receive a new lung.  Now the surgical team at CHOP is giving her a chance at life.”

    I have been following this story for the past few weeks. I have to say how good it makes me feel to know there’s still humanity in the world today. Congrats to this little girl, and best wishes for a long and healthy future.

    Pat Toomey did what was right. He saw a need and he responded. Perhaps there will be changes made to the guidelines for transplant recipients in the future. What about Katherine Sabilias? In my humble opinion, the woman is an individual with a block of ice beating in her chest where a heart should reside. What is wrong with her? She said she would "look into the guidelines regarding transplants". She is a mean, nasty, unfeeling woman, and there is no place in Health & Human Services for uncaring folks like her. Ms. Sabilias main concern these days is promoting ObamaCare, and fund raising. From all the information I've seen about this terrible legislation. it will eventually bankrupt the lower and middle classes of this country.
