April is national donate life month.Across the country, 22 people die every day waiting on a life-saving transplant, and someone new is added to the list every ten minutes.Officials with Baptist Health Corbin and Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA) said, unfortunately, some may people may not register as donors based on misleading information.“There is a myth that [you would] not be able to have an open casket when somebody donates organs and that’s not true,” said Alice Tremaine, the Advanced Care Planning Coordinator at Baptist Health Corbin. “Nobody would even know that that person has had a recovery surgery.”
