Rose Parade Media Wrap-Up  |  January 18, 2011

We were thrilled that myriad local media took an interest in the story of Colorado Rose Parade float rider and tissue recipient Parker Simpson. It was a great way to kick off the New Year: with a reminder of the amazing possibilities of tissue donation.

Additionally, another Rocky Mountain participant, Patricia Thomas (sponsored by Donor Alliance) also received great media coverage of her participation. Patricia rode aboard the Donate Life float in memory of her daughter Kathleen, who was a tissue donor.
