Donate Life Month – KREX 5 – Grand Junction, CO
If you’re in Colorado, you may come across a symbol of love. “There’s people throughout the state going around and putting little hearts,” said Diane Eckert, who’s brother was an organ donor. For Eckert, these hearts represent much more than that. “We are hopefully inspiring others to get their little red hearts on their drivers licenses,” said Eckert. Eckert saw first hand just how big of an impact organ donation can bring, when she lost her brother Cody in a car accident in May of 2013.
