Virtual Candlelight Ceremony


Every year during the holiday season, many of our partner hospitals host a candle lighting service for donor families and recipients to honor their heroes. This year for the safety of our community, we will honor the memory of our donors virtually instead.

We are beyond moved by the number of submissions we received this year. The memories and legacies these hero donors left behind persevere in our hearts and minds and in the lives of those they gifted with sight.

The candles may also be viewed individually on our Instagram feed.

If you have a message or story to submit, please use our donor story submission form to be featured on our website.
