A former Dartmouth girl will be in the Tournement of Roses Parade Tuesday.

Carrie Holstrom, who suffered burns over 70 percent of her body in a car accident 6 years ago, will be riding on the Shriners Hospitals for Children’s float. She will be one of four former patients riding the float, entitled “Helping Kids Live Their Dreams”.

The float will show children that they can live their dreams even in the face of tragic events. Recovering from her burns took seven months in a Shriners hospital, including three months in an induced coma, and countless hours of physical therapy. After Carrie recovered, she became a “Patient Ambassador” for the hospital system, sharing her experiences and eventually taking a job with Shriners, running a 5k on her prosthetics and living in Houston.
