At 39 years old, with three children and a very active lifestyle, I found myself with a debilitating eye infection that could not be identified or cured. But because someone's family chose the gift of organ donation, I received a donor cornea for transplantation. Not only did the donated cornea save my eye, it gave me my lifestyle back! I enjoy good vision and can see to do all the things that I could do before."
