CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) – As we conclude our focus of National Donate Life Month, we want to acknowledge we’re in the midst of National Pediatric Transplant Week. The little ones are also in need of organs and tissues.

Of the 115-thousand people waiting for an organ transplant, there are nearly 2-thousand children under 18 on the waiting list.

Thanks to increased awareness and calls to action, this country experienced another record-breaking year of transplants being made and donors willing to make the gift.

Kristine Neal, Director of Communications for Sharing Hope S.C., joined us in-studio with details on how you can make a difference.
