Over 114,000 Americans are waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant.  Each year, that number on the waiting list continues to grow much larger than the number of donors.  Nearly 500 of those people live right here in Nebraska, reports Extension Educator Susan Harris.  Statistically, 50 of them will die without receiving their needed life-saving procedure.

 Even though 95% of adults in the United States support organ donation, only 54% actually sign up to do it, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
