A Tribute to Providence Mission Hospital Organ Donors

Each day there are approximately 107,000 people on the national transplant waiting list, hoping that today might be the day that they receive the gift of life.  Every nine minutes another person is added to the waiting list.
This recognition page is dedicated to all the heroes who turned loss into hope and transformed lives through organ donation.  
On behalf of every person whose live has been saved through organ donation, and their grateful family members, Providence thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.

A Prayer for Organ Donors

Lord God, by your sacred breath, you give life to all things. Through the love of humankind for one another, and through the wisdom of science and medicine, we have the ability to share that gift of life with one another. Every few minutes, another person is added to many organ request lists in order to save their life. Bless those men and women, and their families, who have volunteered to donate their organs. They share in the holy work of preserving life. Whether the recipient is a family member or a stranger, their gift is a precious reminder of their love for all people and an extension of God’s love. Bless those caregivers who are a part of the organ donor program and the transplant teams. May we always give you thanks and praise for the opportunity we have to share in your work of creation by giving the gift of life.
