In the past, most organ transplants were from dead donors or between parents and children. But in recent years, medical progress has made transplants possible between people with no biological relation.

The new option provides a greater chance of improved health, but it also brings emotional challenges for both the donor and recipient. We follow three couples as they try to overcome their struggles.
