Stoughton Health Pauses to Give Life Honoring Organ, Tissue and Eye Donors and their Families

Apr 12, 2024 | News & Notes

Pause to Give Life Ceremony

Stoughton Health was among hospitals and organizations that celebrated National Donate Life Month by participating in a nationwide Donate Life Flag-raising ceremony and moment of silence on April 10th. This event honored organ, tissue, and eye donors and their families, and promoted awareness of organ, tissue, and eye donation and the need for more registered donors.

One organ donor can save up to eight lives. This event honored the gifts of life that donors and their families have made possible and recognized the more than 103,000 patients currently waiting for a life-saving transplant, nearly 1,500 of which are right here in Wisconsin.

The Donate Life flag was first introduced in 2006. Since then, it has become a national symbol of unity, remembrance, and hope, while honoring those touched by donation and transplantation. During the past 18 years, more than 100,000 Donate Life Flags have flown across America.

Save and heal lives. Register as an organ, tissue, and eye donor at or at a Wisconsin DMV Service Center.
