Cancer Center Tree of Life

The Tree of Life, on permanent display at the John A. DeQuattro Cancer Center, is a beautifully sculpted wall mounting with hundreds of leaves in brass, silver and copper.

Donors may memorialize and honor family members, friends, and organizations through the purchase of one of the engraved leaves, doves or boulders with an added personal inscription.

Funds raised through the Tree of Life support the DeQuattro Cancer Fund which offsets the costs associated with nurse navigators, nutritionists and other support services that provide a compassionate and skilled environment serving the specialized needs of cancer patients.

The Tree of Life honors the memory of loved ones who have passed on, but also celebrates the current lives of family and friends by honoring birthdays, anniversaries, marriages, retirements or other special occasions.

Family, friends, organizations, and companies interested in memorializing or honoring an individual or organization can purchase an item to engrave. Donors can select from either a $100 Brass Leaf, $200 Silver Leaf, $300 Copper Leaf, $600 Dove, or $1,000 Boulder and personalize it with an inscription (maximum 89 characters, including spaces). After engraving, the items are mounted on the Tree of Life (a leaf is 2" x 4").

To purchase a leaf, dove or boulder:

  • Please make your check payable to the ECHN Community Healthcare Foundation
  • Include the brief inscription that you would like engraved (maximum 89 characters, including spaces)
  • Provide your name, address and phone number
