One year ago, tragedy struck a University of Michigan Health System transplant flight team that was on a mission to complete a lung transplant. Tonight, the UMHS will observe the anniversary of this tragic event which took the lives of six UHMS transplant team members. You can read the CBS report on the original event here as well as UMHS‘ announcement for the observation ceremony here.
Transplantation is an amazing process that requires the coordination of so many for success. Take a moment today to pay tribute to all those hard working surgeons, nurses, transplant coordinators, OPOs and others that devote every day to helping save and improve the lives of those waiting for organ & tissue transplants.
