MEDFORD-- Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center is hosting the Threads of Life quilts from Donate Life Northwest. Four quilts are dedicated to the memory of those who gave the gift of life, sight and mobility. The quilts also celebrate the lives of organ transplant recipients and represent hope to those waiting for a transplant.
