MORA, UMMC balloon release celebrates ‘Gift of Life’

The Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency held its annual picnic April 1 on the west side of the UMMC campus to kick off National Donate Life Month. MORA and UMMC employees, along with families of organ donors, enjoyed hot dogs, drinks, and blue- and green-topped cupcakes. The beautiful spring day was a bonus to the cookout and fellowship. Before eating lunch, the crowd gathered for a moment of silence followed by a simultaneous release of environment-friendly balloons to celebrate organ and tissue donors of the past year.
