Donate Life Month at DCMC


On Wednesday, April 19, more than 40 people attended a flag raising at Door County Medical Center (DCMC) to honor National Donate Life Month. DCMC joins with The BloodCenter of Wisconsin and the Wisconsin Donor Network to encourage community members to indicate their willingness to be organ, tissue and eye donors through state and national registries.
 
Approximately 2,400 Wisconsinites and 119,000 Americans are awaiting organ transplants. Becoming a donor is a simple process that can result in renewed life for others. Participants in the flag raising included Door County residents and DCMC staff members who have been touched by organ donation and transplants.
 
“By registering as donors, we all have the potential to capture and pass on life, comfort and hope to others,” says Gerald Worrick, President and CEO of DCMC. “We are committed to this partnership to promote awareness of how organ, eye and tissue donation can turn illness or injury into a second chance at life.”
