Listen: Mayo Clinic Radio: 4/13/19
Each April, National Donate Life Month is celebrated to encourage Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors. On the Mayo Clinic Radio podcast, Dr. Charles Rosen, director of the Mayo Clinic Transplant Center, discusses the importance of organ donation and what's being done to improve the number of organ donors. Also on the podcast, two Mayo Clinic transplant patient stories are featured. First, Chad Corey and his donor, Chris Douglas, explain what it's like to wait for — and find — a living kidney donor. And Julianne Vasichek shares her story, four years after her liver transplant.
