Donate Life ceremony shares local stories

A Donate Life flag was raised at Door County Medical Center on Monday morning to proclaim the need for organ donors and recognize National Donate Life Month in April.  Christa Krause, a registered nurse and Chief Nursing Officer, shares the critical need for organ donors. 



Bone marrow transplant recipient Chase Hartl, son of Troy Hartl and Shelly Krueger, was on hand to help raise the Donate Life flag.     A moment of silence for one minute and 14 seconds was observed signifying the over 114,000 people waiting for an organ transplant in the United States today.  Deb Eisen, who donated a kidney to her brother, shared her story of hope.
