Area Transplant Recipient to Participate in Famed Parade

Area Transplant Recipient to Participate in Famed Parade

A Rochester area man who has lived ten years with a donated liver is scheduled to be part of the Tournament of Roses Parade Wednesday in Pasadena, California.

Richard Perez plans to 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 support other transplant patients.
