April is National Donate Life Month, a time to recognize the importance of life saving organ transplants.

St. Luke's hosted a special flag raising outside of the hospital on Friday, to honor organ donors. The Donate Life flag flew in the sunny skies.

Thomas Saburn, the recipient of a heart after a heart attack, said he volunteers with Donate Life to spread the word about the importance of being a donor. 

The hospital said right now, there are 107,000 men, women, and children waiting for an organ transplant.
