Inside the World’s Biggest Gathering of Organ Transplant Recipients

Hosted by

Every year, thousands of people get together to celebrate organs – kidneys, hearts, lungs, livers. They are transplant recipients and doctors and the families of donors and they converge on Cal State Fullerton to raise money and awareness for organ transplantation. This year, the annual event added something new: setting the official Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of organ transplant recipients in one location. Our producer Matt Holzman was there as a participant.
