PEORIA, Ill. — As April wraps up, so does National Donate Life Month.
The entire month is a special time to honor donors and their families for saying yes to being a donor.
Tuesday, OSF Saint Francis Medical Center held a flag raising ceremony for organ recipients on hand to thank donor families.
Just one organ donation can save eight people’s lives, according OrganDonor.gov. Nationally, 1 million tissue transplants and more than 36,000 organ transplants were performed in 2018.
