Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Honoring Health Care Professionals
Honoring doctors with cards and gifts for their hard work and dedication of service has a long tradition in the U.S. The first Doctors Day observance was March 30, 1933 in Winder, Georgia. Eudora Brown Almond, wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, decided to set aside a day to honor physicians. This first observance included the mailing of greeting cards and placing flowers on graves of deceased doctors. The red carnation is commonly used as the symbolic flower for National Doctors Day.
We at PAMF provide patients the opportunity to honor their doctor through our "Guardian Angel" gift program.
Honor Your Caregiver
When you make a gift of $25 or more to the PAMF critical need of your choice in honor of your chosen caregiver, your guardian angel will receive a card informing her or him of your thoughtful gift. Your guardian angel will also receive a custom-crafted guardian angel lapel pin to wear proudly. All guardian angel honorees are recognized by name in PAMF’s annual report.
When you donate now, you will help us address critical needs in the community, including:
- Expanding our Youth Nutrition Program to 15 additional schools reaching more kids in the community.
- Purchasing new Varian HDR Brachytherapy technology, to help treat breast, prostate and other cancers while limiting exposure to healthy tissue.
- Purchasing new prenatal and pediatric equipment as part of the Excellence in Women and Children’s Care Initiative in Santa Cruz.
Our Doctors Say "Thank You!"
We have had many who have shown their appreciation through the Guardian Angel program in the past. We appreciate your generosity and so do our physicians. See how your expression of gratitude made our doctors feel in this video.
