ETMC lights up Christmas tree for the 26th year in a row

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) - The ETMC Christmas tree is lit up once again for the 26th year in a row.

Every year, a special ETMC patient is chosen to light the tree.
 
This year, it was a Tyler man who received a kidney from a living donor.
 
ETMC Athens financial officer, David Travis, was transplanted in October with a living kidney donation from his childhood friend.

Since 1987, the ETMC Transplant Center has helped 677 patients receive a path to a better life with a kidney transplant.
