Area Man to Appear in Tournament of Roses Parade

Rochester, NY -- An area man who has lived ten years with a donated liver will take part in the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California, on New Year's Day.

Richard Perez will ride on the "Donate Life" float and will represent the University of Rochester's Finger Lakes Donor Recovery Network and Solid Organ Transplant Program.

Perez's experience as a liver recipient led him to volunteer at Strong Memorial Hospital to help and support other transplant patients.
