Saving Lives Through Organ Donation

  • Aired: 02/10/2011

  • Rating: NR
Right now, more than 100,000 people in the U.S. are waiting for a life-saving organ. Every ten minutes, another name is added to the list and, sadly, 18 people a day die before an organ becomes available. Experts say organs from one donor can save or help as many as 50 people. We examine giving the gift of life and who benefits from this invaluable act of kindness.
