Donate Life Flag Raising

Updated: Thursday, April 18 2013, 10:23 PM EDT
Mission Hospital honors those who give the ultimate gift, the gift of life.

A flag was raised outside the hospital to celebrate both donors and recipients of organs or tissue.

"Donate Life" is a grassroots organization that tries to increase donor awareness and participation.

They started the idea of raising flags all across America.

Dr. Ronald Paulus, President & CEO, Mission Health, "there are over 120,000 people across the united states waiting for organs or tissues, and just in the last year, over 100 within the Asheville community have been helped."

The flag will fly high at Mission Hospital for the next 30 days.Donate Life Flag Raising
