Donate Life event at JCMC a good reminder for all of us about organ, tissue donation

Team members at Johnson City Medical Center, along with people impacted by organ donation, supported Donate Life with representatives from Tennessee Donor Services.JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – Last week the Johnson City Medical Center hosted the annual Donate Life event, put on by Tennessee Donor Services, to promote organ donation.

 

The ceremony always features someone whose life has been touched by organ donation. At JCMC, David Lively spoke about how his son saved lives by donating his organs, and Joe Carder spoke about how his life was saved by an organ donation. These serve as reminders to all of us about how important it is to become an organ, eye and tissue donor. April is designated as Celebrate Life Month to raise awareness for this issue, and Mountain States is a big supporter.
