We could make it about numbers.
There are about 98,000 people waiting for an organ donation - that's not the kind of waiting you do for a pizza or Springsteen ticket.
Every day 77 people get the organ transplant they need. Seventeen to 19 die waiting for the organ that never came.
April is Donate Life Month. If there isn't a little heart on your driver's license, maybe you want to do something about that.
And if you don't, maybe you will after you hear this show.
Because we're not going to make it about numbers. We're going to make it about a person like you, someone whose reality was a million miles removed from any thought of having her heart cut out and replaced by someone else's.
A young, healthy, popular radio newscaster who one day, all of a sudden, needed a new heart.
And that's when the waiting started.
