Father: Sarah is so strong and positive

Anderson Cooper talks with the family of 10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan, who is now one step closer to possibly receiving  lung transplant. Her parents are afraid their daughter, who has cystic fibrosis, could die in weeks if she doesn't receive  a transplant.

A federal judge in Philadlephia granted a 10-day restraining order blocking U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius from applying a policy that keeps children younger than 12 from being prioritized on the list for available adult lung transplants.

    I thought that Obama was going to issue an executive order to help Sara. Nonetheless, this courageous judge has already started to help Sara

    I think it's very sad that she got excited to get it. That means she had to go through a lot and she wasn't sure of the outcome. It should not have been an issue in the first place. I can't believe that any child would have to beg for their life.
