Bridge to Life, Ltd. and LifeGift will present the family of Chad Jones, a young man who gave life to others through the gift of organ and tissue donation, with a framed floragraph that was part of the 2011 Donate Life Rose Parade Float.
Chad was one of the 59 organ, eye and tissue donors from across the country whose images adorned the Donate Life’s float entry in Pasadena in January. At the same time, the Jones family, LifeGift Vital Volunteers and founders of Donate 4 Life, a foundation that raise awareness of the critical need for organ and tissue donors, will announce that they are “paying it forward” by sponsoring another family to participate in this year’s Tournament of Roses Parade.
The family will accept the floragraph on Thursday, July 14 at 10 a.m. at the LifeGift offices located at 2510 Westridge St. in Houston. Those in attendance will include: Michael and Sheree Jones, whose son, Chad saved the lives of four perfect strangers through organ and tissue donation; Kim Wayne -Seagle, mother of Patrick Nunnelly, organ donor, who will have the opportunity to participate in the 2012 Donate Life Rose Parade Float, themed “One More Day”; and Lisa Miranda, wife of Dr. Victor Miranda, a Houston physician who gave life to others through organ and tissue donation. Dr. Victor Miranda was honored in the 2010 Donate Life Parade float, “Life Rises.”
