LaKishia White of Fresno, and Jessica Jurado of Sacramento will join ten other living kidney donors on New Year’s Day as the float, themed “Light Up the World”, travels down the 5-mile parade route. LaKishia’s husband, JePahl White, is riding on the float as a kidney recipient.

LaKishia and Jessica were both living kidney donors in a kidney chain at UC Davis Medical Center in which JePahl received a kidney from Jessica. Because of Jessica’s donation, her mother, Berta, received a kidney from a woman in Santa Barbara. LaKishia’s kidney went to someone in Pennsylvania.

“Living kidney donation gave me an opportunity to fulfill my purpose in life…” says LaKishia. “I would do it all again if I could.”

“This experience has changed my life completely,” says Jessica. “I have a healthy mother who is stronger and better because of this program. I’m eternally grateful.”
