Blake saved five lives through his family’s generous consent to organ and tissue donation. This holiday season, on New Year’s Day in Pasadena, Calif., Blake’s photo will be one of 60 depicted in flowers on Donate Life’s 2011 Tournament of Roses Parade Float. Blake is the only organ donor highlighted from Missouri.
Inspired by the families who generously chose to donate the Gift of Life, the PICU staff at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center in St. Louis, Missouri wanted to recognize “The Enduring Gift” of the organ and tissue donor.
Creating a lasting tribute to organ and tissue donors as well as their families, Mid-America Transplant Services is dedicated a new Donor Memorial Monument in the central grounds near its office, 1110 Highlands Plaza Drive East in Saint Louis, Missouri. The dedication ceremony took place at 7p.m. on Wednesday, August 26.
