To recognize National Donate Life Month, Tampa General Hospital enlisted artist Laura Thomas to create a chalk mural. The piece, titled “Bee a Donor,” spreads awareness of the critical demand for organ, eye and tissue donors.
Currently, there are more than 107,000 individuals in the U.S. who await organ donations. Over 5,000 of those in need are Floridians.
Since 1974, TGH’s Transplant Institute has performed more than 12,000 organ transplants. As one of the busiest transplant institutes in the U.S., TGH is committed to ensuring all patients get a chance.
Register to become a donor at DonateLifeFlorida.org.
