Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Grandview Medical Center held a flag-raising ceremony Thursday to promote organ donation. Life Connection Ohio sponsored the event, which featured a local organ donation recipient who spoke about the importance of giving the gift of life.

“There are 100,000 people waiting for organ and tissue donations, so it’s important to educate the people on what it means to donate our organs and tissues and the impact it can have on people like myself,” says Treva Bitler.

Currently, there are roughly three thousand Ohioans on the organ donation waiting list.

Last year, Life Connection Ohio’s efforts recovered organs for more than 200 life-saving transplants.
