Organ and tissue donations save lives. One group, meeting Monday at UK, knows that first hand.

Donors, recipients, and their families got together during a reception today on campus. They know organ donation can bring great joy, but also sadness and grief. Some donations are from people who died.

ABC 36 spoke to Tony O'Campo, who was on a kidney transplant list. He finally received a kidney this year, but only after a young person died. O'Campo says he cried when he got the phone call.

Thirty Kentucky donor families will have messages, included on roses, on a float in the next Rose Bowl parade in Pasadena.
