A patient's lifesaving gift

When a dying patient is an organ donor, Asante employees show their respect with an "honor walk." In February, the staff at Asante Three Rivers Medical Center lined the hallways to honor one patient whose donation will save the lives of others.

I have seen this done at another hospital. God bless this wonderful patient and his/hers family members. Death is nothing easy to behold but the nurses and doctors who take care of them is a true testament not just in marriage until death do us part

Having lost a family member in December, the grief of that loss is still very fresh. This kind of compassion takes real courage.... to share in the grief of a family in this situation is truly admirable. You just can't know how deep of an impact you have on others in doing this.

I got chills reading about this display of respect.  How kind.  Would that we could be mindful of this measure of respect in our daily interactions with one another. 
Inspiring. Thank you.

What an amazing, incredible, touching thing to do. God bless this patient's family in their time of loss. And God bless the family(ies) who benefit from this selfless act of being an organ donor.

This is awesome and heart wrenching at the same time. I am proud to be an organ donor and my hope and desire is when I pass away that they will be able to utilize my organs at that time.

Although I would have loved nothing more than to honor this patient, who had already become an angel, a blessing to so many others by agreeing to share the beautiful blessing of functioning organs, I decided that the more important thing was to support the staff on the floor while others went to honor this angel.  I thank God every day that we have this technology that allows us to bless others through organ donation.  I also thank God every day that I work amongst some of the most loving and selfless people on the planet.
