More than 120,000 people in the U.S. are waiting for an organ transplant that could save their lives.
Sadly, 18 of them will die every day before they're matched with a donor.
But there are also great success stories, and some of them were celebrated in Charleston Sunday.
The Center for Organ Recovery and Education, also called CORE, held its second annual ceremony honoring families of donors who helped save lives through organ, tissue or cornea donation.
