While Tuesday is Valentine’s Day, it’s also National Donor Day — a time to focus on organ donations and registrations.

Roughly only 24-percent of New Yorkers are enrolled as organ donors but that number could jump drastically very soon because of a new law going into effect Tuesday.

The new law allows 16-year-old’s to now register as donors.

For a look at the impact an organ donation can have watch the story above with a heart recipient out of Baldwinsville.
