Save a life, donate your organs

The need for organ donation far exceeds the number of registered donors among minorities.

The Texas Organ Sharing Alliance is encouraging Hispanics in the valley to donate at the start of National Minority Donor Awareness Week approaches.

Edwina Garza with the alliance stopped by Sunrise to explain.

She said currently 118,515 men, women and children are on the waiting list in the U.S.

Another 11,526 people from Texas await life-saving organs.
