Fayette County Memorial Hospital and Lifeline of Ohio
To show appreciation for the continued support Fayette County Memorial
Hospital shows Lifeline of Ohio through the organ, eye and tissue donation
process, Lifeline of Ohio will be placing a rose on the 2019 Donate Life
Rose Parade Float signed by Tammie Wilson, Chief Nursing Officer of the hospital.
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.
About Lifeline of Ohio: An independent, non-profit organization, Lifeline of Ohio promotes and
coordinates the donation of human organs and tissue for transplantation.
Lifeline of Ohio serves 72 hospitals in 37 counties in Ohio and two in
West Virginia and is designated as an organ procurement organization through
the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
