DELPHOS — Each year in Ohio, approximately 200 people die waiting for an organ transplant. Statistically, one person dies every other day and 18 die every day nationwide.

At least 3,400 Ohioans await a life-saving transplant alongside 120,000 nationwide.

These were the sobering statistics brought to Jefferson and St. John’s freshmen Thursday by double-lung transplant recipient Amber Payne, Lifeline of Ohio Organ Procurement Coordinator Jackie Hines and St. Rita’s Medical Center ICU Manager and Critical Care Nurse Deann Heiing.
