Hospitals Team Up for Organ Donors



If you really want to give some love on Valentine's Day, you can take part in the Show Me Your Heart campaign. Five area hospitals are asking people to "show their heart" as registered organ and tissue donors by displaying their driver's license designating themselves as donors —  or by signing up that day.

Participating hospitals are Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis, Methodist University, LeBonheur Children's Hospital, Saint Francis-Memphis, and the Regional Medical Center. Each will have booths set up in their lobby or cafeteria from 6 a.m.-8 a.m., 11 a.m.-2 p.m., and 6 p.m.-8 p.m. The hospital with the most registered donors will receive a trophy from the Mid-South Transplan Foundation.

Donated organs save thousands of lives each year. For more information, visit www.midsouthtransplant.org.
