Martinsburg VA Medical Center
Celebration of Life Service
March 30, 2012
Have you or a loved one given or received an organ donation? We hope you will attend our Celebration of Life Service to honor you and others who have given and received the gift of life – Thursday, April 26 at 1 p.m. in the 2nd floor Chapel.
April is National Donate Life Month. Veterans are among the over 100,000 people currently on a waiting list for an organ transplant. Every 12 minutes another name is added to the national list and an average of 18 people die each day waiting because there are not enough organs available.
The VA encourages all Veterans, their families and VA employees to become an organ donor. Did you know that a donor can potentially save and enhance the lives of more than 50 people? Learn how you can become an organ donor at http://www.organdonor.gov.
