CAMC recently dedicated a “Tree of Life,” located in the lobby of General Hospital. Family members of those memorialized on the tree, along with CAMC staff and representatives from the Center for Organ Recovery and Education (CORE), participated in the ceremony.
The donor tree is a gift from the CAMC Foundation and the General Hospital Auxiliary.
“A tree symbolizes life, which is what an organ donor’s gift represents to a transplant recipient,” said Glen Martin, associate administrator of CAMC General Hospital. “This tree is a reminder of the selfless gifts that donors and their families have given and of the miracles that would not have been possible without them.
