Every April, Midwest Transplant Network staff joins transplant centers, donor hospitals, Donate Life America and others to celebrate National Donate Life Month (NDLM). NDLM is meant to encourage people to register as organ, eye and tissue donors, as well as to honor those who have saved and enhanced lives through the gift of donation.

Our partners are crucial to our mission of saving lives through the gift of organ, eye and tissue donation with dignity and compassion. We encourage staff from our partner hospitals, transplant centers, and treasury and licensing offices to share their donation and transplantation spirit broadly during April.

“Garden of Life,” this year’s NDLM theme from Donate Life America, depicts an “ecosystem of plants, insects and other components working together to form an interconnected living system. Similarly, we each have the potential to nurture and enrich our communities through organ, eye and tissue donation.”
