(NBC NEWS) Sarah Murnaghan, the 10-year-old Pennsylvania girl whose quest for new lungs spurred changes in the nation’s allocation system, was set to receive a transplant today, her mother said.

“God is great! He moved the mountain! Sarah got THE CALL,” Janet Murnaghan wrote on her Facebook page early Wednesday.

The mother said Sarah, who was declining rapidly from end-stage cystic fibrosis, would head into surgery within 30 minutes. She has been hospitalized at Children’s Hospital Philadelphia for three months.
