Passion Growers’ Roses Offered as Thank You to Mayfield Florist Blood Drive Donors

November 26th, 2011


Passion Growers’ friends at Mayfield Florist, along with the American Red Cross teamed up on Nov. 26, 2011 for a blood drive. Since 2003, Don Coleman, co-owner of Mayfield Florist, has been working with the American Red Cross to hold the Blood Drive in Honor of his son Sean Coleman, whose life was saved by a blood transfusion following a heart transplant when he was only four months old.

Sean Coleman was diagnosed days after his birth with a heart defect that lead to the thickening of the heart walls and eventually limited the pumping action of the organ. His parents had lost Sean’s older brother, Patrick, to the disease four months before Sean was born.

Sean was placed on a transplant waiting list and, when he was 4 months old, on Nov. 29, 1995; he became the youngest heart transplant patient at University Medical Center. Today Sean is an active normal sophomore in high school and an amazing young man. Don, who is co-owner of Mayfield Florist, schedules the blood drive around the anniversary of his son’s successful operation. Each donor received a bouquet of Passion Growers’ roses as a Thank You for those who gave blood. Donors also had the option to “Pay it Forward” and donate their roses to either Peppi’s House (TMC Hospice) or the Diamond Children’s Medical Center.
