Thousands of Minnesotans Waiting for Organ Transplants

By

There are 2,855 lives on the line in Minnesota today, with another 100,000 across the country.  That's enough people to fill both the Metrodome and Target Field combined. Each are waiting for organ or tissue transplants. It's an issue near and dear to KSTP Meteorologist Ken Barlow's heart…Wednesday, Governor Dayton honored the families of 120 donors, including Ken Barlow's. Each were given a Medal of Honor.  Each day, there are more people waiting than there are organs available. That's why KSTP is working with the Mayo Clinic in Rochester to encourage organ donation.
