The Flag Will Fly in April in Honor of National Donate Life Month

MACON, GA (Monday, April 2, 2012) – As part of an ongoing effort to support patients and families when they are making decisions about organ donation, The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG) will fly a “Donate Life” flag in honor of National Donate Life Month for all of April.
The “Donate Life” flag program, sponsored by the United Network of Organ Sharing (UNOS), has been adopted at hospitals throughout the nation to increase awareness of the need for organ donation, and to recognize those families that have made the very difficult decision and life-saving gesture.
MCCG is committed to educating patients and their families about the benefits of organ donation. MCCG has received recognition from the Georgia Eye Bank as one of the top hospitals in the state for the number of eye donation referrals.
National Donate Life Month is a time to inspire individuals to designate their donation decision by signing up on the Georgia Donor Registry, discuss the miracle of transplantation as a family, and make a family commitment to organ, eye, and tissue donation. Currently more than 100,000 people are listed for an organ transplant nationwide; in Georgia nearly 2,800 of our family members, friends, and colleagues await their gift of life.
