SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Saniyah Lovett received a kidney transplant Tuesday. Lovett had a rare disorder that could only be fixed with a transplant.

Before Tuesday's transplant operation she couldn't eat pizza! Lovett says she's going to order one,  with extra cheese as soon as she could.

Her mom says WTOC's story from back in July helped find the donor. A viewer also donated a trampoline to the family after they saw the news story. Another WTOC viewer is planning to host a pizza party for Lovett after she recovers from the surgery.
