|"We cannot hold a torch to light another
person's path without brightening our own."
- Ben Sweetland
As Thanksgiving approaches, a time of sharing and remembering, we invite you to participate in the Trees of Love & Thanksgiving project with a light to honor or memorialize a loved one.
Sponsoring lights not only shows appreciation for loved ones who have been meaningful in your life, but lights are also a visual tribute to them. The lights will illuminate the trees at the hospital’s Main Entrance well into the New Year. For each person you wish to honor, a gift of $10 will brighten those lights.
The family or person honored will be notified of your donation. The names of both the donor and honoree/s will be posted on the Trees of Love board located at the Cooley Dickinson Hospital main lobby.
The CDH Auxiliary and the Pastoral Care Committee join together each year to promote the Trees of Love & Thanksgiving project.
This year’s campaign supports 3D mammography, which provides more detail and earlier cancer detection. This new technology also reduces the number of women who will require a call back mammography appointment by up to 40 percent. Funds received will also support the purchase of infant car beds, which are critical to ensuring the safety of underweight babies.
Funds raised beyond the goal of $15,000 will support Cooley Dickinson's anticipated comprehensive Cancer Center, which will provide diagnostic treatment and support services for patients living with cancer and their families in one comfortable and convenient setting.
