Brooklyn comes out of successful liver surgery

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A 2-year-old who stole hearts in the Mid-South came out of a successful liver surgery.

Brooklyn needed a liver, but bad weather nearly kept her from getting to the doctor's that could save her. That is when FedEx stepped up and flew Brooklyn and her family free of charge to Chicago.

Friday the family said Brooklyn came out of surgery. Her family said she still has a long road of healing in front of her, but they're optimistic about her chances.

We celebrate the spark in Brooklyn's eyes and her fight to live! We celebrate the doctors at Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago who have gone above and beyond. We celebrate MEMPHIS and the glow of love and generosity that beams out of this place. We celebrate FedEx being literal heroes to the Faris family. We celebrate every person who has heard B's story and asked, "What can I do?". We celebrate every person who has prayed and cried and donated and shown up for Brooklyn is such a mighty way. God is love... and love is surrounding Brooklyn every step of the way.
