Light Up a Life Tree Lighting Ceremony
Save the Date:
Sunday, December 3, 2017
The Light Up a Life tree lighting celebration netted $30,000, supporting
hospice and palliative care services at Mission Hospital. This annual
event is hosted by the Mission Hospital Auxiliary in collaboration with
Mission Hospital Foundation.
This beloved gathering invites family members and friends to place an ornament
on the Mission Hospital Tree of Lights in honor or memory of a friend,
loved one or caregiver. Tribute gifts enhance palliative care services
by allowing Mission Hospital to incorporate music therapy and massage,
and offer hospice support to those in need.
The event included harp music provided by the Orange County Harp Troupe,
coordinated by Mission Hospital physician, Dr. Hitome Momose, and vocals
by Mission Hospital nurses Marne Andersen and Stephanie Salgado.
The guest speaker was Crystal Walsh, MSW, ACSW, Hospital Liaison Manager
for St. Joseph Hospice/Home Health Network. Crystal shared several beautiful
stories of patients and families who benefitted from enhanced palliative
care and hospice services.
