Sarah Murnaghan, the 10-year-old girl whose family successfully sued to make her more likely to get a pair of adult lungs, may have gotten a boost from public attention before her lung transplant last week, but now that it’s over, some of that attention has turned negative.

On Friday, June 14, Sarah’s mother, Janet Murnaghan, posted a list of “facts” about lung transplants to her Facebook page, explaining that she’d seen a lot of misinformation “out there” and wanted to clarify a few things.

Murnaghan then said her Facebook page was for supporters only, and she didn’t want to be tagged in anything in which people might speak negatively about her in the comments section.

On Sunday night, the “Save Sarah Murnaghan” Facebook page moderator addressed even more negative comments. The Murnaghan family spokeswoman said she did not know who created the page.
