Tissue and cornea transplants can dramatically change lives for the better.

  We continue our look at organ donations in the United States, as we discuss the growing use of tissue and cornea transplants. More than 47,000 corneas were transplanted in 2013, and more than 1 million tissue transplants are done each year. Joining us are LifeCenter Organ Donor Network Executive Director Barry Massa, and Tissue Operations Director Robert Winter, and Maisha Gray-Diggs, who received a double cornea transplant.
