Volunteers from the British Columbia Transplant Society delivered popcorn to the North Island Hospital, Comox Valley Tuesday morning.
The popcorn is a gift to staff in the emergency room (ER) and intensive care unit (ICU) departments to thank them for their involvement in the retrieval of organs to be used in transplants.
The visit was especially significant for the parents of Ciaran Martin, who died after being struck by a vehicle in 2014.
Doug and Jacquie Martin met a nurse who had been involved with Ciaran at the time his organs were donated.
The nurse was the first staff member the Martins had met who had been involved with Ciaran.
