In a recent online video editorial, Sarah Smith, KMBC and KCWE President and General Manager, discussed the nearly 2,500 people in Missouri and Kansas who are waiting for lifesaving organ transplants. Her primary message: encouraging people in the Kansas City community and beyond to give hope and share life by registering as organ and tissue donors at ShareLifeMidwest.com.

In addition, Midwest Transplant Network introduced KMBC 9 News First Alert Chief Meteorologist Bryan Busby as a Green Ribbon Champion last week. In this role, Bryan is sharing his story of the misconceptions he once had about registering as an organ donor – and the importance of saying yes to help others – in hopes that more people learn the facts and register.
