Lions VisionGift is extremely grateful to the numerous members of the community who help facilitate donations. Nurses and physicians aid Lions VisionGift in carefully screening each donor for conditions that may adversely affect the outcome of the donation. Without the assistance and expertise of the staff in medical records and technicians in the laboratory, it would be impossible to assure transplant safety.
Funeral Directors are also a vital link in the donation process and often help Lions VisionGift coordinate recoveries at their facilities, often in off hours. Through their assistance, these individuals provide families with an option that would otherwise not be available. Their support is critical to our mission.
By working with Lions VisionGift, all of these dedicated professionals give families an opportunity to have their loved ones live on through sight-restoring transplants and research.
