STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – April is Organ Donor Awareness Month and today, some local donors gathered at the OCH Regional Medical Center for a special ceremony.

The ceremony kicked off with white, green and blue balloons to represent donors, recipients and patients on the transplant waiting list.
National Donate Life Month began in 2003 to bring awareness to organ, tissue and eye donation. Today’s program was co-sponsored by the Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency (MORA). Both OCH and MORA are a part of the Mississippi Hospitals for Hope campaign, a joint venture to help save lives through organ donation.
