“Over 90 lives have been saved by organ donors in 2018,” Chief Clinical Officer of LOPA Joey Boudreaux said. “Sixty-one people received the gift of sight from cornea donations. The gift of life, often to someone you’ve never met, is such a courageous thing, and organ donation really makes a difference.”
On Thursday May 30, LOPA honored Silent Heroes from 2018 in the Rosary Chapel of Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center in Baton Rouge. On this day, they honored the lives of those who have saved lives of others through their organ donations.
