CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Monday marks the seventh day of a hunger strike for protesters demanding access to organ transplants for undocumented immigrants at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
There were about 40 picketers in front of the hospital on Sunday, including the 14 people on the hunger strike.
"We're asking for help," said Blanca Gomez, 23, who needs a kidney transplant. "I go to dialysis three times a week. I'm not going off the hunger strike until I get on the transplant list."
