Two days after an agreement was reached to move 13-year-old Jahi McMath from an Oakland hospital, it remains unclear where the brain-dead girl will end up.

An attorney for McMath’s family has said it has located a doctor willing to work with them and mentioned that she could be sent to a facility in New York, according to NBC Bay Area.

Though a court and hospital officials say Jahi is brain-dead, her mother, Nailah Winkfield, still holds out hope and claims the girl is “improving.”

“I will always fight for Jahi until she is ready to go, her own self. I can’t play God. She’s going to get better or she’s not, but I see her getting better,” Winkfield told reporters Friday night, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
