Donate Life Month ceremony set for April 1 at Van Diest Medical Center.

Q95 Radio

Van Diest Medical Center is joining with Iowa Donor Network to Inspire Iowa to Donate Life during National Donate Life Month this April. Throughout Donate Life Month we celebrate transplant recipients who have been given a new life, we shine light on the many more who are still waiting, and we honor donors and their families. Every year since 2002, April has been filled with stories to spread the lifesaving message of donation in order to inspire people to register as organ, eye and tissue donors. You can become a donor by registering at www.iowadonornetwork.org.

In honor of Donate Life Month, Van Diest Medical Center will host a flag-raising ceremony on Friday, April 1, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at the west entrance to the hospital. This ceremony is in celebration of organ, eye and tissue donation and in recognition of the many people who have chosen to share the gift of life. The public is invited to attend.
