MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - More than 114,000 Americans are currently waiting for a life-saving organ donation.
That includes nearly 1,000 people at Methodist Le Bonheur in Memphis.
The hospital held a flag raising ceremony for National Donate Life Month on Tuesday afternoon.
They emphasized it only takes one person to make a difference.
"This transplant means life extension, life extension is what it really means to me," organ recipient Charles Campbell said. "I realize that without that, i probably would not have been here today."
