Donate Life TN

January is National Blood Donor Month, and this week we take a look at donations of all varieties, with Kim Kennedy and Holly Isom from Donate Life TN. Tennessee has a waiting list of over 2,100 people in need of organs or tissue, donations which statistically only about 1 in 10 of them will get. There is no cost to be a donor, and nearly everyone, regardless of age or certain health conditions, is eligible to donate. Better yet, signing up takes less than 60 seconds. Kim and Holly explain what all types of donations are accepted, share stories of how donations have touched people's lives here in Tennessee, and explain some misconceptions about signing up to be a donor.
