April is National Donate Life Month

For the 2019 National Donate Life Month theme, Donate Life America was inspired by bicycles and the phrase "Life is a beautiful ride." Like the donation and transplantation journey, a bicycle serves as a symbol of progress, renewal and the moving circle of life.
