Research For Life recognizes whole body donors and their families every year in April by holding and Annual Memorial Celebration in Arizona and California. We gather together to honor and celebrate their lives – their gift of whole body donation gives hope to future generations and makes the world a better place for all of us.
Hope should never die with those we love!
Each year during April, National Donor Month promotes the importance of organ, eye, tissue, and whole body donation. Throughout the United States National Donor Month features local, regional and national activities to help inspire Americans to register as organ, eye, tissue, and whole body donors, and to celebrate those who have saved lives through the gift of donation. Research For Life encourages everyone to participate and learn more about how these donors have helped to save lives.
“We welcome you to join us in the celebration of those who have given the ultimate gift to humanity. Thanks to donors and their families, we have hope for more active, healthier, and longer lives. Please bring your family and friends, all are welcome.”
– Laurie Shreves, Director of Family Services at Research For Life
