A joyful day for the Mitchell family Monday, December 17, as Okotoks little Lukah Mitchell has made it through surgery after an organ donor was located for her Sunday, December 16.

People have been following the story and showing a great deal of support for the family, as a tumour was found in her abdomen in October, leading to the discovery that she required replacement organs.

Lukah's mother, Tanis, informed everyone through a social media post that a donor had been found yesterday, and Lukah was scheduled to go into surgery sometime in the afternoon.

Another recent social media post shows Lukah is now on the other side of the surgery, resting in the same location she started from eight weeks ago at the beginning of her journey, where her family was told she wouldn't make it through the next twelve hours.

Medical professionals are performing tests to check blood flow to the new organs.
