Organ Donations Save Lives

  Approximately 18 times each day, someone dies while waiting for an organ transplant. Today there are more than 117,000 people waiting for a life-saving transplant. April is National Donate Life Month, and joining us to discuss organ donation is Dr. Shimul Shah, director of Liver Transplantation and Hepatobiliary Surgery and Associate Professor of Surgery at University of Cincinnati and UC Health, Andrea O’Malley, Public Affairs director with LifeCenter Organ Donor Network, and Ril Beaty, who received a life-saving liver transplant on April 22, 2011.
