Recently, Placentia-Linda Hospital’s CEO, Kent Clayton, was given the opportunity by One Legacy and the Association of Organ Procurement Organizations (AOPO) to handwrite a dedication to be placed on this year’s 2014 Donate Life Rose Parade float, themed “Light Up the World.”
Kent’s personal, handwritten message honored the patients and families who, with the support of Placentia-Linda Hospital and its staff, have saved and healed lives through the gift of organ, eye and tissue donation.
One of the trademarks of the annual Donate Life float design is a “Dedication Garden” filled with thousands of roses, each placed in a vial carrying a unique, personal message from an individual, family or organization. Kent’s handwritten message will be one of thousands of rose dedications from hospital CEOs across the country to be placed in the Donate Life float’s Dedication Garden for the world to see.
