Coming up Saturday morning at 8:00 on The Local Take on WCLK I speak with Stephanie Jackson, Education Specialist with LifeLink Foundation about the need for organ donors. Ms. Jackson explains that LifeLink assists the more than 5,000 citizens in our state in need of organ, tissue or eye transplants.  She tells us that an organ donor can assist 8 people with life. Tissue and eye donors can assist up to 75 people to make their lives better.
