Tree of Life helps hospice, oncology patients

December 1, 2005

Tifton- Tift Regional Medical Center will hold their 20th annual Tree of Life Celebration next week.

You can purchase a light to be hanged on the tree in honor or memory of a loved one. All of the proceeds will be used to offset the cost of special needs for Tift area hospice, transitions and oncology patients.

"It may be a patient that can't lay down to sleep any more, so we've actually gone out and purchased recliners for some of those patients, so it's just any of the needs that would make this time a little more comfortable for the patient, a little easier for the patient and their families," says Joy Davis of Tift Regional Medical Center.

The tree-lighting ceremony will be held next Thursday, December 8th at 6 PM on the front lawn of the hospital. There will also be a special visit by Santa.
