April is National Donate Life month, and on Wednesday people gathered to release green and blue balloons outside the Eastern New Mexico Medical Center lobby in honor of organ donors and their families. Roswell Mayor Dennis Kintigh and Warren Yehl, CEO of Eastern New Mexico Medical Center and the recipient of a donated kidney, were among attendees at the balloon release.
