Ryan Viator’s Legacy Foundation has announced Acadiana Heroes Justin Harrison and Laci Taquino will be honored on the Donate Life float, “The Never Ending Story”, in the 2015 Rose Parade on New Year’s Day.

From LOPA -

Justin and Laci gave the ultimate gift – the gift of life – through organ donation. Their families will view their floragraphs for the first time at 10am on November 20, 2014 in the Lafayette General Medical Center (LGMC) Atrium. Donate Life California Volunteers decorated Justin and Laci’s floragraphs almost to completion. Their families, along with Justin’s heart recipient, will complete the portraits with organic materials.

Justin and Laci, along with 70 other honorees who, in death, gave life to others through donation, will be showcased for 47 million viewers through floragraph portraits. Their portraits, each made entirely of organic floral materials, will be featured on the float “The Never-Ending Story” of hope, giving, and life which is the theme of the 2015 Donate Life Rose Parade® float. Atop the float, the floragraphs will grace 72 books that hold their inspirational stories, with an open book seeming to release 60 butterflies representing the number of lives transformed by a single deceased donor.
