Donate Life Float: 2016 Float Rider - Beth Adler-Bush

Donate Life Float

Beth Adler-Bush of Hamilton, New Jersey, is a very active mother and veterinarian. She loves interacting with animals and enjoys going to the gym to “blow off steam.” While decorating her house for Halloween, she fell from a ladder and landed directly on her knee; rupturing her ACL. Beth had no idea how much of her daily routine depended on her ACL. Simple things such as dancing or working with her patients became extremely difficult. After Beth received the patellar ligament that repaired her ACL, she immediately wrote a letter to her donor’s family; thanking them. “Somebody gave up part of his or her own knee so I could have mine back?!” she said. “I learned first-hand just how much that donation meant to a recipient.”
