DYER | In celebration of organ and tissue donors and recipients, Franciscan Alliance St. Margaret Health Dyer, in conjunction with Gift of Hope Organ and Tissue Donation Network and the Indiana Lions Eye and Tissue Transplant Bank, conducted a National Donate Life Month Gift of Hope tree planting service recently on the hospital grounds, at 24 Joliet St.

Linda Kraiko, senior director of patient services, hosted the event, which was presided over by the Rev. Henry Sequeira, hospital chaplain.

Diane Ranta, a registered nurse in the Same Day Surgery unit at the hospital, told the story of her recently deceased husband, Tom, who was able to extend his life thanks to kidney and pancreas transplants he received.

“We see the last 13 years as a gift of another family’s love,” she said.
