Baby Melissa Bena Mercado Will Be Honored On Donate Life Rose Parade Float

Melissa Mercado was only six weeks old when she passed away, but her gift saved the lives of two people. The NJ Sharing Network Foundation is sponsoring the Mercado family to attend the Rose Parade in Pasadena this year as Melissa is honored on the Donate Life Float.

This month, Melissa’s family gathered at NJ Sharing Network to decorate her floragraph, which will be displayed on the float alongside the floragraphs of 71 other organ and tissue donors. See all of the pictures from the floragraph ceremony here.
