April is National Donate Life Month and Tucson Medical Center is using it to raise awareness about the need for organ donations.

TMC hosted a special flag-raising ceremony Friday, to pay tribute to families who have taken part in organ donation.

TMC says that last year alone 614 lives were saved in Arizona thanks to 225 donors.
