FOX News Analyst Helps Little Girl Get Life-Saving Transplant

Sarah Murnaghan and her parents

It's not often one hears of a true act of kindness originating from the rough-and-tumble world of cable news, but FOX News viewers watched one such story unfold over the course of the summer. When 10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan became in need of a lung transplant (due to the effects of her cystic fibrosis), her parents were shocked to learn that she wasn't legally eligible to be placed on the transplant list. The law said she had to be at least 12 to do so, which obviously wasn't acceptable to her or her family.

Peter Johnson Jr.

Upon being informed of Sarah's plight, FNC legal analyst Peter Johnson Jr. took it upon himself to make the country at large aware of her situation, and made it his personal mission to raise awareness. Johnson hoped that the public pressure might speed up the process, and he was right. Sarah is now 11, and is recovering from successful lung transplant surgery. She recorded a short video message to Johnson, which was played on yesterday's 'Fox and Friends': "Hi Peter," she said. "I'm doing really good. I can breathe, and today I walked all the way to the playroom." The full video of the segment can be seen below:

While various online groups have attempted to politicize the story, I honestly couldn't care less what the reasoning was. A little girl is alive. That's all that should really matter.

Kudos to Peter Johnson Jr. whatever his motives. The fact that a child's life was save is what's important.
