Lifesharing Organ Donor Honored in 2021 Rose Parade Celebration
Lifesharing is proud to announce that one of its heroes was recognized in Pasadena on New Year’s Day 2021. Leia Parker, 2, was one of 21 organ donors memorialized on the Donate Life floral sculpture titled “Community of Life.” The sculpture was displayed on the lawn of the Tournament House and was the only floral display in Pasadena this year. (The Rose Parade was cancelled due to COVID-19). Leia’s floragraph picture was displayed on a floral honeycomb surrounded by flowers and bees, which were meant to symbolize the strength of the community. In 2019, Leia saved three lives as an organ donor when Lifesharing found matching recipients for her heart, liver, and kidneys. Leia’s corneas also gave sight to two women. Lifesharing is a proud sponsor of the 2021 Donate Life floral sculpture.
