Tri-Cities Family to attend Rose Bowl Parade as Tennessee Donate Life ambassadors

Posted: Updated:
PASADENA, CA (WJHL) - The Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, CA has become a New Year tradition, and for a Tri-Cities family, it's one they'll never forget.

Kingsport natives Dave and Barbara Lively are already in sunny California for the famous parade.

Their son, Adam Lively, passed away sixteen years ago, but he saved the lives of five people through organ donation and more than fifty with tissue donation.

Now, his parents are this year's Team Tennessee Donate Life Float ambassadors.

A flora graph of Adam will be featured on the float, as his parents get to watch the parade from the grand stands.

"It brings back the importance of organ donation and how much difference it can make in the lives of people that need a transplant, and how much their lives are in improved," said Dave Lively.

The Rose Bowl Parade airs live on New Year's Day.
