Banner University Medical Center will be hosting its annual Donor Family Tribute on Saturday afternoon. 

The event honors Arizona donors and their families for healing and saving lives in the past year from their organ and tissue donation. 

"April is Donate Life Month and, while we often celebrate the success of organ and tissue transplants and take great joy in the lives saved and healed, we can sometimes forget about the generosity and selflessness of donors who have given others the gift of life and healing,” said Deb Maurer, the hospital’s director of transplantation in a press release. “Without these true heroes of the donor process, transplant would not be possible.”
