Kentucky Organ Donor Registry trying to raise awareness for donations

Kentucky organ donor members joined together on Thursday with the University of Pikeville to celebrate "Donate Life Night."

Officials with the program say there are a huge number of people currently awaiting a transplant.

Most people say personal experiences led them to get involved with trying to help.

"I got involved because it saved my life and I wanted to get spread the word about organ donation." Don Willis, who received a kidney transplant said.
