Donna Brooten of MedActionPlan.com and MyMedSchedule.com joined the Donate Life groups from around the country for the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena on New Year's Day. The float, New Life Rises, honors the new life that emerges when donors make the gift of life possible through organ, eye and tissue donations. Twenty-four riders are on the float representing transplant recipients and deceased donor families. Floragraphs, made of herbs, spices, and floral materials illustrate the loved ones who gave life to those in need. Donna says, "It was an inspiring event, very humbling and hopefully this float, seen on the parade route and on national television, made more people aware of how critical the need is for organ, tissue and eye donations."
