Joey Gotowski is on the waiting list for four new organs, all part of a battle against disease and cancer that he's been fighting since the day he was born. He's one of more than 8,500 people in Pennsylvania on the donor organ waiting list, but waiting for four from the same donor puts him in a particularly difficult situation.

Tonight on FOX43 News at 10, FOX43's Kara Duffy talks to the Gotowski family about their heart-breaking wait for life-saving news. We talk about the shadow cast over Joey's young life, and their efforts to encourage organ donation in PA.
