(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.
