Recipient Stories: We are so thankful for our donor
To my donor family,
I am extremely sorry that you lost a loved one. When my doctor informed me that I needed a cornea transplant, he said that the cornea would come from someone who donated their eyes.
I was sad at first to know my vision would come from someone who lost their life but I was comforted to know that there are good people in this world that are kind-hearted. My donor did not have to say “yes” to donation but I bet he/she did because they must have been a very kind person. I am honored to have been given such a wonderful gift from him/her.
Because I had my transplant, I am able to play with my children without supervision. My wife and I have 4 month old twins and they are a handful! I have been able to go back to work and help her with our girls.
Thank you from my wife, our children and myself. We are so thankful for our donor. Thank you so very much!
