Wall of Hope Unveiled at Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System
LifePoint, Donate Life South Carolina and Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System unveiled a special Wall of Hope exhibit at the hospital on April 12. The Wall of Hope consists of a series of large, full-color panels that tell the stories of local transplant recipients and donors. This exhibit is intended to honor those donors and recipients pictured on the wall along with raising awareness about the need for more organ, eye and tissue donors in Spartanburg County and throughout South Carolina. Approximately 75 people attended the short ceremony and wall unveiling at the hospital.
Pictured on the The Wall of Hope are donors: Ronnie Bailey, Jared Davis, Ryan Harrill, Benji Jolley, Rodney Watson and recipients: Howard Free (living kidney donation from his wife, Gayle), Richard Peay (living kidney donation from his uncle, Roger Hughes), Nancy Gosnell, Reagan Jackson and Joe Johnson.
View "The Power of Two" Documentary
Everyone in the transplant community knows that it takes power to give the gift of life through organ donation, survive the wait and thrive after receiving a transplant. Twin sisters and double lung transplant recipients Ana Stenzel and Isa Stenzel Byrnes, and other members of the transplant community worldwide, show what power can do in the documentary film “The Power of Two.” Called “compelling” and “poetic” by the Wall Street Journal, and an “inspiring triumph” by Golden Globe® nominated actor Jack Black, this winner of ten film festival awards has entertained, educated and inspired audiences globally.
This short video was produced by Donate Life South Carolina to increase awareness about the need for more organ and tissue donors. It also gives information about the South Carolina Organ and Tissue Donor Registry.
