Special to the
Opelika Observer

A ‘Donate Life’ ceremony was held on Aug. 1 to honor 34-year-old Amber Ford, RN who had been an employee of East Alabama Medical Center since March 2, 2015. Ford was involved in an accident in downtown Atlanta on July 27, where she and her husband, Justin, were visiting.
Amber had previously registered as an organ donor and EAMC proudly honored her decision last Thursday night during a public ceremony in front of the hospital.Coworkers, family, friends and patients signed the Donate Life flag that was raised in her honor.
Amber used her life and career to serve others and she continued that life of service by giving the gift of life to several families through organ donation.
A GoFundMe account has been setup to assist her family. Donate at www.gofundme.com/f/amber-ford-donation
Publisher’s Note: Our heartfelt prayers are with the entire Ford family, her friends and the staff of EAMC during this most difficult of times.
