Gift of Life Donor and Recipient Quilts
The Gift of Life Donor and Recipient Quilts were organized by the London Transplant Gift of Life Association, in conjunction with LHSC's Multi-Organ Transplant Program, several years ago.
Each square individually represents one donor or recipient. Familes and patients use the quilt squares to highlight personal sentiments, such as a photo, hobby, poem or talent. Along with the quilt patch, a brief personal comment/story and photo of the patch are included in an album to accompany the quilt.
The original quilts are displayed at University Hospital. Silk-screened quilts are available for community displays and events. If you want more information about either the Donor or Recipient Quilt, please contact Jane Tucker.
