Xtant Medical Honors Donor Hero Asante Contreras on the Donate Life Rose Parade® Float


Company Sponsors Donate Life Float at Rose Parade for the Ninth Year

BELGRADE, Mont., Nov. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Xtant Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE American: XTNT), a global medical technology company focused on surgical solutions for the treatment of spinal disorders, honors Asante Contreras, a donor hero, as part of its continued sponsorship of the 2023 Donate Life Float at the Rose Parade in Pasadena on Monday, January 2, 2023. The 2023 Donate Life Rose Parade float is titled Lifting Each Other Up.

Asante Contreras, Donor Hero

Asante is remembered for his smile, positive energy, and dedication to helping others. He hoped to be an emergency room physician and became an EMT to save money for medical school. Sadly, he passed a day before taking the test needed to complete the Paramedic Certification Program at UT Health San Antonio. The school honored Asante’s work by giving him his certification posthumously. Asante was able to leave one final, lasting gift as a cornea and tissue donor.

“Asante’s passion for caring for others shone through in his final gift, ultimately allowing others to live a full life,” said Sean Browne, President, and CEO of Xtant Medical. “We honor his incredible life and legacy by reinforcing the values and lifesaving opportunities that donation brings to patients in need. Our support for Asante, Donate Life, and Lifting Each Other Up further enables Xtant Medical’s mission of ‘honoring the gift of donation, by allowing our patients to live as full, and complete a life as possible.’”

Organ, eye, and tissue donation offers hope to donor families who, in the midst of losing a loved one, see the chance to believe their loved ones’ gifts will help save others. At the same time, those waiting to receive a lifesaving organ have the dream and hope that a donor will become available to restore their health and change their lives. They can now achieve their life’s goals, all thanks to their donors. The Donate Life Rose Parade float is celebrating its 20th year of participating in this national effort to reach viewers and share the vital message that organ, eye, and tissue donation saves and heals lives. Xtant Medical is proud to be part of this noble endeavor.

As the world’s most visible campaign to inspire organ, eye, and tissue donation, The Donate Life Rose Parade float inspires viewers to help the over one million people in need of organ, eye, or tissue transplants each year.
