Donor recipient gives back

Rochester, N.Y. - Richard Perez decided just days after his liver transplant that he wanted to donate his time.

He wanted to talk to other patients and tell them that help was coming.

But the Rochester area has only 30 percent of potential organ donors signed up -

Thats far short of the national average, which is close to 45 percent.

Richard helped lead a group that handed out roses for donor recipients -- and for those still on the waiting lists.

Now they head for California to represent the Finger Lakes Donor Recovery Network in the Tournament of Roses Parade.
