Patty Phillips, an organ recipient; and Barbara Walker, whose daughter was an organ donor; joined Billy Jarvis, educational coordinator with Tennessee Donor Services; and Daniel Grabarek, medical student, April 4 to raise the Donate Life flag at Cumberland Medical Center in recognition of National Donate Life Month in April. In 2012, 426 Tennesseans gave the gift of life, saving 738 lives. Almost everyone can be a donor. There is no age limit and very few diseases preclude donation. One person can save or enhance the lives of more than 50 individuals through organ and tissue donation. In Tennessee, donors may register simply by checking yes when applying for or renewing their driver's license. A small red heart is placed on the driver's license. Residents may also sign up at www.donatelifetn.org.
