A Tribute to Mission Hospital Organ Donors

Each day there are approximately 107,000 people on the national transplant waiting list, hoping that today might be the day that they receive the gift of life.  Every nine minutes another person is added to the waiting list.
 
This recognition page is dedicated to all the heroes who turned loss into hope and transformed lives through organ donation.  
 
On behalf of every person whose live has been saved through organ donation, and their grateful family members, Providence thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.
