April is national donate life month, and St. Joseph's Hospital is one of more than 2,000 hospitals in the nation that's getting involved.

A donate life flag hangs inside the hospital as part of the flags across America campaign.

It's to celebrate the hundreds of thousands who have donated and received organs and tissues.

"We're hoping that by displaying flags like this, people will stop and think about the importance of organ and tissue donation, and most important register as organ and tissue donors," Rachel Lewis with Lifeline of Ohio said.

"Donation is a life that I wouldn't have right now if I didn't have one," Pamela Wendell, recipient of an organ donation, said.

Anyone wanting to become a donor can do so by either registering at the Division of Motor Vehicles, or on lifeline's web site, which we've made easy for you.
