Organ donors, families honored at Hershey ceremony

Lebanon Daily News | Chris Sholly
HERSHEY - Todd A. and Christine M. Turner had been married almost 22 years when he lost a battle with a brain tumor on April 11.

"He had the biggest heart you could ever imagine. We talked about being organ donors" before he died, his wife Christine said.

On Sunday, the Palmyra woman was among hundreds of family members who attended a remembrance ceremony for organ donors in Hershey.

Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and the Gift of Life Donor Program hosted the second Rose Parade Donor Remembrance Ceremony in the Health and Fitness Center on the hospital campus. Family members received a silk rose, a certificate and a donor medal pin to honor the memories of their loved ones who were organ donors in the past two years.
