AGAINST THE ODDS
By Debbie Juniewicz
There are currently more than 3,400 patients waiting for transplants in Ohio alone – more than 115,500 nationally – and that need continues to grow. According to Life Connection Ohio, another person is added to the National Transplant Waiting List every 10 minutes and 18 people die each day waiting for a transplant.
