AlloSource Sponsors Heroic Quadruple Amputee as Rider Aboard 2010 Donate Life Rose Parade Float
Date:12/2/2009

CENTENNIAL, Colo., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- AlloSource, one of the nation's largest non-profit providers of skin, bone and soft tissue allografts for use in surgical procedures and the world's largest processor of live cellular bone growth substitutes, today announced its sponsorship of a truly iconic symbol of hope as a float rider aboard the annual Donate Life float in the January 1, 2010 Tournament of Roses Parade®.

Dr. Ross Wilkins and Dr. Bill Brown and their team at the clinic used human tissue processed at AlloSource to help Salazar's mobility. Donor bone was used to help build him a shoulder joint. Along with muscle from his back, the new shoulder c
