WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - April is National Donate Life month.

This month serves an encouragement for Americans to register as organ, eye and tissue donors while celebrating those who have saved lives through donation.

Monday morning, Tina Henry, a woman who received a life-saving liver transplant in 1996 and Bobby and Vicky Blair whose son Shon saved seven lives through organ donation in 2014, raised a flag in honor of National Donate Life month.

Wichita Falls Mayor Stephen Santellana proclaimed April as Donate Life Texas Month in the city.
