LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- To celebrate National Donate Life Month, Jewish Hospital held an organ donor event to encourage more people to consider donating their organs or the organs of loved ones when they die.
WHAS11's Karma Dickerson has the story of how that donation changed one man's life. Liver recipient Joe Roberts gathered with other organ recipients at Jewish Hospital's "Celebrating New Life Event" to encourage organ donation in the commonwealth. Nearly 700 people in Kentucky are currently waiting for organs.
There are several ways to become an organ donor including online, through the mail, or when you get your driver's license. Click here for more information.
