WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Mercy Health celebrated organ and tissue donors and recipients Friday during a special gathering at St. Joseph Warren Hospital.
The Donate Life celebration was held at the hospital’s healing garden, behind the Cancer Center.
Representatives from Lifebanc, Eversight Ohio and Mercy Health honored and paid tribute to donors and their families who gave the gift of life.
David Denovchek was one of the event’s guest speakers. It was about a year ago that he donated a piece of his liver to Jamie, a Trumbull County foster child who was battling a debilitating liver condition.
