What is the Tree of Love?
Tree of Love is a 25 foot tall tree made from poinsettias that is showcased in the Genesys Regional Medical Center atrium during the holiday season. The tree is constructed the day after Thanksgiving and taken down after the new year. Made possible through charitable donations, more than 700 poinsettia plants make up the Tree of Love, bringing joy and warmth to Genesys patients and visitors during the holiday season.
Where the money goes
Almost everyone has known a family member, friend, or loved one who has been affected by cancer. Many times, when someone is diagnosed with cancer, their whole world turns upside down, and the physical, emotional and financial stress is unbearable. The Tree of Love funds can help Genesys cancer patients with the financial burdens of cancer. One hundred percent of the money raised through Tree of Love will go back to our community to benefit Genesys cancer patients with their financial difficulties.
Who can help?
Anyone with a passion to help Genesys cancer patients in our community can help by becoming a sponsor, purchasing an ad in the program booklet or by making a donation of any amount.
