PASADENA, Calif. (WHAS11) – A particular moment during the Rose Bowl Parade captured the attention of two families here in Kentucky.
The Donate Life float rolled through town carrying the faces of 82 people who gave the gift of life through organ donation.
Louisville native Keegan Adkins was one of them.
Adkins died at just 6 years old from an accidental drowning two years ago.
He saved three lives that day through organ donation.
Mt. Sterling resident Jeff Ballard was also represented.
Ballard donated the gift of life in 1998 after suffering a brain aneurism.
