Sarah Murnaghan, 10, is getting her wish and will be put on the adult lung transplant list.
A U.S. district judge granted her family's request due to the severity of Murnaghan's condition.
The family is challenging organ transplant rules that say children under age 12 must wait for pediatric lungs to become available.
The family says that rarely happens.
Murnaghan's doctors believe they can perform a successful transplant with adult lungs.
She has been hospitalized for three months with end-stage cystic fibrosis.
The family went to court after health and human services secretary Kathleen Sebelius declined to change the policy in place since 2004.
Thousands gathered at the memorial to pay tribute to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice and to those who survived.
You may remember the story we did earlier this week about the Pearl Harbor survivor who was headed here from the mainland for the ceremony, he was bumped from the flight and didn't know if he would get here in time.
It may take drivers a little longer to get around this weekend. On Sunday, there will be lane and road closures for the Honolulu Marathon.
