Ascension Providence hosts donor drive for National Donate a Life Month


April is National Donate a Life Month, and today Ascension Providence held a donor drive to celebrate the gift of life and encourage Texans to consider registering to be a donor.

Last year more than 36,000 transplants brought renewed life to patients and their families across the country. Ascension Providence hosted a donor registration drive, an honorary flag raising ceremony, and a reception to encourage community members to register as organ, eye and tissue donors.

Dr. Brian Becker, Chief Medical Officer of Ascension Providence, interviewed with KWKT about the importance of donor registration.
