AAMC to support Donate Life during New Year’s Day parade
Since 2004, the Donate Life Rose Parade float has served as a memorial to organ and tissue donors and a platform for donor families, living donors and transplant recipients to inspire the world to save and heal those in need through the gift of life.
On behalf of AAMC’s staff, donors and their families, our CEO, Tori Bayless, supported Donate Life by signing a vial which will hold a rose on the float during the Rose Parade.
One person can save up to eight lives through the donation of lifesaving organs – heart, kidney, liver, lungs, pancreas and small intestine – and help 50 people or more who need corneas to see, skin to heal from burns, and bones and connective tissue for common knee, back and dental surgeries. In addition, approximately 6,000 lives per year are saved by living kidney and liver donors.
