In recognition of National Donate Life Month, UMC unveiled the Donor Wall on Monday in honor of those who have given the gift of life as organ donors.
Wade Crowson, the director of transplant services at UMC says there is a great need for donors nationwide.
"Seventy-nine people a day receive an organ transplant and even more patients are waiting for organs to become available."
Transplant recipients also attended the event to thank the donors.
