GRMC Participates in the “Flags Across Maryland” Campaign, Honoring Organ, Eye, and Tissue Donors

Garrett Regional Medical Center hosted a National Donate Life Month flag ceremony on April 19 that included donor recipients, representatives from Donate Life and GRMC staff.   Throughout the month of April, in celebration of National Donate Life Month, Garrett Regional Medical Center, along with The Living Legacy Foundation, Maryland’s organ procurement organization, and Donate Life Maryland, will fly the Donate Life Flag in honor of past, present, and future organ, eye, and tissue donors and donors in spirit.

 

The “Flags Across Maryland” campaign, in conjunction with the national “Flags Across America” campaign, brings a greater awareness to the 115,000 people waiting nationally for a life-saving organ transplant.  In Maryland alone, about 3,600 people are anxiously waiting for a second chance at life.
