Door County Medical Center and more than 85 other Donate Life Wisconsin member hospitals statewide took time Monday morning to pause and promote the importance of organ and tissue donation. According to Donate Life, one donor can save up to eight lives with 2,000 Wisconsinites waiting for life-saving transplants. Chief Nursing Officer Christa Krause says no matter if you or a family member is in need of a donation or would like to help save a life, you can find people to talk about that decision in Door County.
Anyone 15 and a half or older can register to be a donor regardless of health, gender, or ethnicity at DonateLifeWisconsin.org or any Wisconsin DMV Service Center.
