How To Save A Life

April is National Donate Life Month. In 2016, more than 33,600 transplants brought renewed life to patients and their families. But another person is added to the nation's organ donor list every 10 minutes. And, on average, 22 people die each day while waiting for a transplant.

Joining "Cincinnati Edition" to discuss organ donation and to share their personal stories are kidney transplant recipient Danette Jones; kidney donor Olivia Zick; Pat McEntee, who received a new heart in August 2017, and his wife, Amy; and Community Relations Director for LifeCenter, Andrea Johnson.

Tune in to "Cincinnati Edition" April 25 at 1 p.m. to hear this segment.
