Celebrating organ donors

University of Missouri Health Care will join Midwest Transplant Network and Heartland Lions Eye Banks in celebrating the lives of local donors and transplant recipients at a special Donate Life Month ceremony at noon April 15 in the main lobby of University Hospital.

Local donor families and transplant recipients will share their stories of how organ, tissue and eye donation has touched their lives. Donor families will make a two-dimensional decorated flower in memory of their loved ones that will be displayed in a shadow box in the University Hospital lobby. University of Missouri Health Care’s 2009 donor families will be presented a rose and certificate in recognition of their loved ones entry in the 2011.
