Jennie Edmundson Hospital Hosts Organ Donation Kickoff

April is National Donate Life month. Right now there are over 650 people in Iowa alone that are on the wait list for some sort of organ donation.

The medical staff at Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs kicked off their awareness campaign Monday morning.

Liz Ford was on hand with the story of how her late husband was murdered, but she used that tragedy to help others. He was a victim of vehicular homicide in 2015 and has since had his tissue and corneas donated to those in need as far as South Korea.

That fact, Liz says, makes his loss more than she can put into words.
