Houston VA Hospital Emerges as Donation Champion
The Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston has embraced organ, eye and tissue donation and is developing plans to help LifeGift offer more hope to more people – and an Ambassador of Hope is paving the way.
Marielle Weston, a nurse at the VA and also an Ambassador of Hope, is leading the charge, with the hopes of registering 800 organ, eye and tissue donors to the Donate Life Texas Registry by the end of April. This initiative is part of the VA’s quest to earn national recognition from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as a participant in the Workplace Partnership for Life campaign “Let Life Bloom.”
The VA’s campaign will officially kick off in March.
LifeGift would like to personally acknowledge and thank Marielle for her passion and commitment to saving more lives through donation!
