LAKE GENEVA/JANESVILLE, Wisconsin- To celebrate Donate Life Month in April, Mercyhealth will host a special event to raise awareness of organ donation, Monday, April 1, 10 am at Mercyhealth Hospital and Trauma Center-Janesville, main lobby and Mercyhealth Hospital and Medical Center-Walworth, main lobby.
After meeting in the main lobby at 10 am, we will walk to the flagpole and raise the donate life flag at 10:08 am. 10:08 signifies that every 10 minutes a new person is added to the organ wait list, and that one donor can save eight lives. We will then pause for one minute and 14 seconds to recognize that 114,000 people are on the national wait list.
Donate Life Wisconsin (DLW) has invited its member organizations to raise their Donate Life flag at the same time throughout the state. This event is free and open for anyone to attend. For more information about Mercyhealth, visit mercyhealthsystem.org.
