Pictured: Denise Phillips, Southeastern Med, proudly stands with the Lifeline of Ohio Donor Quilt.

Lifeline of Ohio Donor Memorial Quilts connect the past to the present, honoring donation heroes whose single gift may have saved eight lives and/or healed the lives of 50 others through organ, eye and tissue donation.

Donor families create memory squares and include pictures of their loved ones, quotes and meaningful symbols, making each panel unique. Individual donors featured on the twelve Lifeline of Ohio Donor Quilts have offered others the chance to survive and improve the quality of their lives as an organ or tissue transplant recipient.

Southeastern Med is pleased to honor the heroes of donation by displaying this quilt in its lobby. Each Lifeline of Ohio Donor Quilt is a visual testament to the human spirit that embodies organ and tissue donation.

Cambridge, Ohio – While undergoing cancer treatment at Southeastern Med, lifelong Byesville resident Jeff Milton was diagnosed with an abdominal aortic aneurysm – an enlarged, weakened area in the lower part of the aorta. This condition is referred to as a “silent killer” because there are often no symptoms until it’s too late, and a rupture of this major artery can cause fatal bleeding.

Jeff hadn’t experienced any symptoms, but his aneurysm was large enough to concern his oncologist, Dr. Alkhouri, who referred Jeff to local vascular surgeon Dr. Jackson Flanigan for treatment. Dr. Flanigan is the only local surgeon trained to perform endovascular aneurysm repair, in addition to most minimally invasive vascular procedures for peripheral artery disease (PAD).

Dr. E KumlerSoutheastern Med’s newest pediatrician, Dr. Ellen Kumler, comes to the hospital with more than 15 years of experience working with children.

Prior to arriving in Cambridge, Dr. Kumler spent 20 years living in various parts of the world, including Kentucky, Washington, D.C., and Japan. She was most recently the Public Health Clinician and Medical Director at the Mason County Health Department in Maysville, Kentucky.
