TULSA, Oklahoma -

A Tulsa woman will be walking next to the Donate Life float in the 2015 Tournament of Roses parade. 

Cheryl Manley will be honored as a living organ donor and her daughter Amanda Philpott, who died from injuries sustained in a 1996 car crash will be featured in a floragraph on the Donate Life float. 

Cheryl will be the first living organ donor to walk in the parade alongside a floragraph of their loved one. A floragraph is a portrait, of the donor, created with floral materials such as seeds, grains, spices, dried flowers and other organic materials. 

Ever since the tragic loss of her daughter, Cheryl Manley has been a Life Share advocate for organ, eye and tissue donation. In October 2014, she donated one of her kidneys to another donor mom she had grown close to through her advocacy work.

“My work with organ, eye and tissue donation has taught me so much. I know it saves lives.” Cheryl Manley said. “I am truly honored to be able to help educate the public through my volunteer work.”

The Tournament of Roses parade takes place in Pasadena, California on New Years Day.
