A Cherished Tradition
Come see a beautiful sight that will warm your heart this holiday season--Christmas trees overflowing with silver star ornaments. These Lights of Love trees serve as a visual reminder of donations given in honor or in memory of a special person. When you give a donation to the St. Elizabeth Foundation, a personalized silver star ornament is placed on the Lights of Love trees.
Raising Funds for an Advanced Burn Laser
This year, your donation will help provide an Advanced Burn Laser for burn patients at CHI Health St. Elizabeth. These laser treatments go deeper into the tissue to help surgeons improve not only cosmetic outcomes for burn patients but also functional outcomes, including range of motion and flexibility. Currently, patients have to travel out of state to access the treatment, receiving typically 3-6 treatments. Just imagine what this could mean for burn patients and their families to have this cutting edge technology right here in Lincoln, Nebraska. Current cost: $145,000.
Watch this three-minute video as Dr. David Voigt and Christi Chaves of the St. Elizabeth Burn & Wound Center explain how this new cutting-edge technology will help our burn survivors.
Come See the Trees
The Lights of Love trees with personalized ornaments are located on the first floor walkway at St. Elizabeth. Names are also recorded in the Book of Honor which is displayed at the Lights of Love Ceremony to be held on Sunday, November 29, at 6 p.m. in the Lower Level of St. Elizabeth, 555 S 70th Street, Lincoln, Nebraska. All are welcome to join us for the short program, followed by the lighting of the outdoor Christmas trees. A light meal will served by the St. Elizabeth Auxiliary at no charge. Please RSVP at 402-219-7052 by Wednesday, November 25.
