Date:12/30/2013

sile, Director of Microsurgery at Walter Reed, performed the surgery that saved Bonfiglio’s leg. Today, using his own leg, Bonfiglio can walk and jog, and is currently training for the Paralympics at Penn State University.

Jill Schiaparelli, Senior Vice President of Marketing at AxoGen, remarked, “The thirty riders selected for Donate Life’s ‘Light Up the World’ float are an inspiration to us all with their individual stories of gratitude for renewed life. AxoGen is honored to have offered a nerve repair solution that helped save Edward’s leg and we are proud that the American Association of Tissue Banks selected Edward for this year’s float. His story is one of great courage and immense accomplishment and is a shining example of successful nerve repair with our processed nerve allograft.”

Since 2005, the AATB has sponsored the Donate Life Rose Parade Float. The theme of the 2014 Donate Life Float, "Light Up the World," supports the organization’s mission of saving and enhancing lives through the gift of organ and tissue donation.
