Life saving organ transplantation has become common medical practice, but for transplant recipients, it’s anything but routine. Tuesday, we’ll talk about how patients become eligible for transplants and how the process works for donors and recipients. As part of ideastream's series Lifegiving Transplant Stories The Sound of Ideas will also look at the costs: What will insurance cover? Does your ability to pay factor into whether you get the transplant? Please join us, Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. on 90.3.

Guests

Gordon Bowen, CEO, LifeBanc
Dr. Kenneth McCurry, cardiac surgeon, Cleveland Clinic
Lynne Coughlin Samson, executive director, NTAF (National Transplant Assistance Fund)
Toni Abbott, Lakewood, lung transplant recipient
