April is National Donate Life Month

National Donate Life Month

April is National Donate Life Month, a time to celebrate the gift of life made possible by the generosity of organ, tissue and eye donor heroes. While we are unable to gather in person this year due to the spread of COVID-19, we invite you to join us this month to help save lives and honor donor heroes, donor families, caregivers and the 113,000 people waiting for a second chance at life.
