In honor of Donate Life Month, Methodist Hospital | Specialty and Transplant and Methodist Hospital are illuminating blue and green to raise awareness about the growing need for organ donors in our community. Every year, thousands of lives are saved across the country because of organ transplantation; this wouldn't be possible without the selfless sacrifices of individuals willing to share the gift of life by becoming an organ donor.
National Donate Life Month is annually observed in April and encourages organizations and communities to come together to raise awareness around organ, eye and tissue donation. We can all be champions of the #DonateLife cause by encouraging open conversations with others around the ability to be an organ donor and the need of those waiting for a second chance at life. The transplant teams at Methodist Healthcare have developed world-class transplant programs for recipients in need of kidney, liver, pancreas and heart – none of which would be possible without the extraordinary organ donors throughout the nation.
National Blue & Green Day is Friday, April 22, 2022. The Donate Life colors and symbol is a call to action, asking the public to Donate Life and consider organ donation. Choosing to donate an organ is a life-changing decision for both the donor and the recipient and can inspire other ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
