Of all the gifts a person can receive, a life-saving organ is among the most precious.
On Tuesday, family members of local organ donors gathered at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach as the "Tree of Life" was unveiled to give thanks and honor the life-saving donations.
Mindy Davis, of Huntington Beach, spoke at the ceremony. Her 19-year-old son, Scott, died from a skateboarding accident three years ago, and his wish was to have his organs harvested to help others.
"We were able to donate his heart, and just last week we met the recipient," Davis said.
