CHICAGO (FOX NEWS) - A Memphis toddler finally got a liver transplant at a Chicago hospital -- thanks to some help from FedEx.
Brooklyn Faris and her family had been waiting for months to hear about an available liver for the 2-year-old. That call came in Wednesday while the family was home in Memphis.
They had to get to Chicago by a certain time, or they'd be passed over for someone else. But a snowstorm got in the way -- hundreds of flights were canceled, and driving or taking the train would take too long.
Private pilots offered their own planes and an anonymous teacher offered to pay almost $10,000 to charter a jet.
But when weather kept pushing back takeoff times, finally someone contacted FedEx and the company put Brooklyn on a cargo plane. They got her to Chicago in time for the transplant.
In a statement, FedEx said when they learned of Brooklyn's situation they knew they had to do something, and are very glad they could help. They are now "pulling for a quick and full recovery" for the little girl.
