The AATB has selected a tissue recipient to ride on the Donate Life Float in the 2016 Rose Parade. The theme of the 13th Donate Life Rose Parade float, "Treasure Life's Journey," provides the perfect setting for the float's powerful message of saving and enhancing lives through the gift of organ, eye and tissue donation. The AATB is pleased to announce this year's representative is tissue recipient Miren Ivankovic of Clemson, South Carolina. Miren was nominated by LifePoint, Inc., an AATB-accredited facility based in Charleston, South Carolina.
