SPRING HILL, Kan. - Hally Yust of Spring Hill, Kan., is one of 60 organ donors nationwide being celebrated on this year's Donate Life America float at the Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year's Day.

Nine-year-old Hally died in 2014 from a bacterial infection caused by an amoeba.

Hally will have a floragraph on the float. Float design teams created a picture of Hally using flowers and seeds. The Midwest Transplant Network sponsors Hally's floragraph.

Hally's relatives were given the honor of adding finishing touches to the floragraph.

Hally's parents, Jenny and Shon Yust, will be in Pasadena, Calif., along with friends and other relatives to see the float. Shon and Jenny Yust donated their daughter's kidneys, and because of that gift, the recipients, two adult men, are able to enjoy life with their families. Continue reading.
