Local Hospital Dedicates Donor Memorial Garden

The Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland, Colorado dedicated a memorial garden to honor organ, tissue and blood donors. The Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank was a contributor to the garden's construction. Robert Austin, the eye bank's public relations manager, said the memorial is a fitting tribute to these heroes.  "The eye bank doesn't cure blindness, our donors and their families do," Austin said. "They humble and inspire us every day. The impact of their decisions is felt not only in this community and our state, but throughout the world." Eye tissues donated at this particular hospital have been transplanted in seven states and 5 countries.
