Those who have given the gift of life through organ donation were honored Tuesday in Lafayette.
The Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency, the Southern Eye Bank, and Lafayette General Medical Center hosted a special ceremony for local heroes who have given life and sight through organ and tissue donation. LGMC's front entrance is lined with donor memorial quilts telling the story of each incredible gift.
"The hope that it gives donor families, organ, tissue and cornea donations, the hope that they have through that even after such a horrific tragedy, it really makes a huge difference," said Suzanna Morton, community educator for LOPA.
