THE DOWNLOAD: Butterflies, Ribbons, Rugby, Apples

Honoring UC Davis organ and tissue donors

Three dozen butterflies — symbols of new life — were recently released during a tribute to those who gave life to others.

Hosted annually by UC Davis Transplant Center and Sierra Donor Services, the ceremony recognizes the generosity of UC Davis Medical Center patients who became organ and tissue donors. Because of them and others like them, 1,200 people in the Sacramento region received lifesaving transplants last year.

More information is available on the UC Davis Health System website.
