Real-life stories of people who have given of themselves so that others might live will be told April 27, 2012 during a Franciscan St. Anthony Health-Crown Point observance of National Donate Life Month.
The program will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the hospital main lobby with a prayer, a procession of flowers, and remarks from hospital officials and representatives of organ donor agencies.

A donor registration drive will take place from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. outside of the cafeteria, near the main lobby. The hospital is located at 1201 S. Main St.
