The Tournament of Roses Parade on January 1 is America’s New Year Celebration! Lifeline of Ohio is excited to honor Fayette County Memorial Hospital and place a rose on the Donate Life Rose Parade Float as a symbol of their dedication to organ, eye and tissue donation. They will join in a meaningful tribute which celebrates their role as a vital collaborative partner in the organ, eye and tissue donation process.

About the Donate Life Rose Parade Float: As the world's most visible campaign to inspire organ, eye and tissue donation, the 2019 Donate Life Rose Parade® float, Rhythm of the Heart, highlights the musical diversity and rhythms of Africa. Djembe drums from Senegal, along with a Kuba drum from the Congo will carefully integrate 44 floral portraits in their beautiful design, honoring the brave lives of deceased donors. Twenty-six living donors or transplant recipients ride or walk beside the float, gathering around the drums, a giant marimba from Ghana, and an exotic kora from Burkina Faso.
