Holzer Health System to be Included on the 2019 Donate Life Rose Parade Float

This year, to show appreciation for the continued support Holzer 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 Dr. Michael R. Canady, CEO of Holzer Health System.  Lifeline of Ohio is an independent, non-profit organization that promotes and coordinates the donation of human organs and tissue for transplantation.

Shown in the photo, Dr. Canady wrote a message that will be placed on the Donate Life Rose Parade Float, which is lined with thousands of roses in the messaged vials to show support of organ, eye and tissue donation. Holzer’s message is one of thousands dedicated from hospital CEOs across the country. The 2019 Donate Life Rose Parade® float, themed “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.

As the world's most visible campaign to inspire organ, eye and tissue donation, the Donate Life Rose Parade® float inspires viewers to save and heal more than one million people in need of organ, eye and tissue transplants each year.  Register today to become an organ, eye or tissue donor by visiting www.DonateLife.net.
