MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Ten-year-old Jordy Carper, who hopes to undergo a rare lung transplant operation to help him fight cystic fibrosis, appeared before a national television audience Wednesday morning to tell his story.
Jordy's mother, Melissa Carper and grandmother, who wish to donate part of their lungs to the Hedgesville, W.Va., boy, also appeared with Jordy on ABC's "Good Morning America."
The Carpers were asked how they felt about the operation after they were told what they will go through.
Jordy's grandmother, 51-year-old Sherilyn Barnhart, seemed unfazed by the procedure, even though it will reduce her lung capacity by about 20 percent.
