Family: Sarah Murnaghan Is Breathing On Her Own

Posted: Updated:
Remember Sarah Murnaghan? She made national headlines while getting a controversial lung transplant in Philadelphia last year.

At just 10 years old, Sarah underwent two double lung transplants while battling cystic fibrosis,

A judge's order allowed her to get on an adult organ donor waiting list, despite her young age.

Well, she just hit a huge milestone. Today, we got an update on Sarah Murnaghan that we could not be happier to report.

After a long road to recovery Sarah, who is now 11, is back at home.

And we've now learned she's had her breathing tube removed, which means she's breathing on her own for the first time in years.
