Donate Life Month event to be held in Columbia, SC tomorrow

Supporters of organ and tissue donation will hold the inaugural Linking Hands for Life event at Riverfront Park in Columbia, SC tomorrow (Saturday, April 16th) at 4PM EDT. The event's purpose is to raise organ and tissue donation awareness. The event will have live music and attendees will link hands to symbolize a chain and the cycle of life.

One little girl, Reagan Potter, will celebrate her sixth birthday at the event after having a heart transplant when she was less than a year old. She was diagnosed with a serious heart defect immediately after birth. If you cannot attend the event, you can still celebrate Reagan's birthday with her as well as Donate Life Month. How ?? By signing up to be an organ and tissue donor if you have not already. Just click on the banner to the right to visit the Donate Life America website for more information and to learn how to sign up in the state where you live.
