Albany --1,500 Georgians are waiting for transplants. The Georgia Coalition on Donation is encouraging people to become organ donors by spreading the message from the pulpit.

The organization urged spiritual leaders to use Sunday's sermons to promote organ donation. Members at Second Mount Olive Baptist Church in Albany listened to the story of one of it's members who is awaiting an organ donation that might save her life.

"A lot of people know that I'm on dialysis and I try to put my best face forward but it is difficult" says Ronette Brown. More than 18,000 people across the nation are waiting for organ transplants.
