We want our families to know just how much we care.
Last year proved to be a very successful year for providing tissue for corneal transplantation. The gift of sight. Sometimes we forget who made this possible, where did the corneal tissue actually come from? It comes from those generous people that registered to be a donor, along with the family that supports and honors their loved one’s decision. It is because of this act of kindness, we are able to continue our mission.
Every day, we work diligently to secure the opportunity to improve a life through corneal donation…

Mark gave so much in life, it would be just like him to give as much in death.Read More
