Imagine waiting for something that could save your life but not knowing if it will ever arrive? That's what it's like, every day, for the 123,000 Americans currently waiting for an organ transplant. Another name is added to the list every 10 minutes and sadly, 21 people a day die before an organ becomes available. Experts say, organs from one donor can save or help as many as 50 people.
