Hundreds of people are expected to pack Campus Martius Wednesday for a big organ donation event called: "Donate Life in The D."  Their goal is to highlight the need for more organ donors in Detroit, Wayne County and other multi-cultural communities. Click the Video player for JoAnne Purtan's interview with a remarkable teenager who's alive today, because a stranger saved her life.

Organizers will "thank those who have selflessly given gifts of life, celebrate the lives they've saved and lend hope to those who continue to wait. "

Transplant recipients will team up for the free event with donor family members and donation organizations, transplant centers and the government, non-profit and business sectors. The public is encouraged to attend.

The event will highlight the fact that without donors there are no transplants.
