Lowell General Hospital Partners with New England Organ Bank for 2015 Rose Parade
Lowell General Hospital is partnering with New England Organ Bank to honor and remember those who gave the gift of life through organ and tissue donation. On Jan. 1, 2015, the Donate Life Rose Parade float titled 'Never-Ending Story' will include a garden of roses with handwritten dedications from hospital administrators across the USA, including Amy Hoey, Executive VP and Chief Operating Officer of Lowell General Hospital.
This year's 'Never-Ending Story' float features 60 butterflies, one for each life that can be transformed by a single deceased donor, emerging from an open book. Butterflies ascend above 72 volumes adorned with floragraph portraits of deceased donors. Float will transport 30 riders - transplant recipients, living donors, family members of deceased organ, eye and tissue donors.
To register as donor, contact state's driver license renewal provider or visit www.DonateLifeNewEngland.org.
