I failed to remind everyone to make sure to watch for the Donate Life float during the Rose Parade this year, but hopefully some of you were able to watch it. If you go to www.donatelifefloat.org , you will be able to see the float design, its meaning, the donors honored with floragraphs, and those that had the honor to ride the float. I did have the pleasure of meeting Delores Benton Evans at the National Donor Recognition Ceremony in Washington DC in July and hearing her story. Her son Ryan Evans was honored with a floragraph on the float and was pinned on the National quilt with Abrielle. Make sure you read about how she received her kidney from her own son after he passed.
