Recipient and Donor Family Find Each Other on Facebook

Check out our YouTube story and find out how Brandon Witt reached out to Joey Ianiero, one of the recipients of Witt's stepfather's tissue, and the friendship that it created. It is about a tragic death for one family that was turned into a medical success story for another through tissue donation. The families met on Facebook and a surprise reunion was held right before Thanksgiving 2010 on Brandon’s birthday.
