Bradenton, FL – On Friday, April 17, 2015, Blake Medical Center will host a flag raising ceremony in honor of National Donate Life Day. Today, more than 5,800 patients in Florida await life-saving organ transplants. Many of these individuals get a second chance at life due to the generosity of those who designate themselves as organ, tissue and eye donors on Florida’s organ and tissue donor Registry.
The Public is welcome and encouraged to attend our Flag Raising Ceremony. You will hear stories from living donors and recipients in an effort to bring attention to the need for and impact of donation and transplantation. Please join us after the ceremony in our cafeteria for more information on how you can help.
Register now to be an organ tissue donor at www.DonateLifeFlorida.orgor visit your local Bureau of Motor Vehicles. This simple yet important decision can make such a difference for those in need, and can be a moment that lasts a lifetime.
