Events and Observances
Every year, countless lives in Southern Colorado are saved and improved through the gift of life: organ, eye and tissue donation. Penrose-St. Francis Health Services held their flag raising ceremony on Thursday, April 21st to honor organ, eye and tissue donors, families and recipients and observe April as National Donate Life Month. Among the crowd at the hospital was Sheryl Marlor, an R.N. with Penrose-St. Francis Health System. Sheryl knows just how life-saving and healing donation can be. The gift of life has touched Sheryl personally. Last year when her husband Dave passed away, he made it clear that he wanted to be someone’s hero. Dave said yes to donation.
