(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The 11-year-old girl who sparked a national debate on organ donation is back home tonight.

Sarah Murn-Ahan spent six months in a Philadelphia hospital.

She needed two sets of lungs this summer, due to her battle with cystic fibrosis.

Sarah's parents challenged national transplant rules that put her at the end of the waiting list for adult lungs after she already spent a year-and-a-half on the children's wait list.

The operations came after a judge intervened in her parents' lawsuit.
