I had originally had this in the Win Column Page, Little Lilly’s story had reached someone through this petition that was gracious enough to offer to fly the family across country where She was accepted on the transplant list. She had a donor, but the trip was too hard on her and when the family landed she had a temperature of 106 degrees and was septic. Because of her condition upon arrival she was not able to have the surgery and the heart went elsewhere. That had been the last update for almost four months before we finally got the word that Baby Lilly passed on December 31st 2016. In a way, it was a partial victory, because people who signed this petition set out to give a little girl a chance, and she was given one, but the fact remains that the reason she had to be given one in the manner that she was, is because she had been removed from the transplant list in her area over discriminatory reasons. Let this be a lesson in how much farther we have to go before we have the right to truly deem ourselves a CIVILIZED people.
