I’m sure a “thank you” card is not really sufficient to say how thankful I am for the very generous and thoughtful gift made to me through your beloved donor.
To whomever receives this precious gift, we hope it brings you peace, good health and a new excitement for life.
My name is Shannon, I’m the daughter of Sharon. I’m very heartbroken that my mom suddenly passed away, however I’m glad she was able to donate her cornea to you. Read More
Hi, My name Chris Davis, I’m a former U.S. Coast Guard swimming Instructor, and in 1991 I was diagnosed with an eye disease called KERATOCONUS, which is the thinning of the Cornea. Upon my initial diagnosis and beyond, My vision was a MESS! Cars tail lights, especially at night, looked like airplane propellers and the basketball rim was an orange blur. I often rendered undeserving salutes to fellow shipmates because I couldn’t see the rank insignia on his or her collar clearly.Read More

Dear Special Messengers of Hope:
As a recent recipient of a donated cornea, I can attest to how such a gift can be life changing.
Following my procedure, the doctor said she had some good and bad news. She indicated I couldn’t have received a better graft, but it came from a young child, which makes this letter particularly difficult.
