Cornea transplants have one of the highest success rates at close to 95 percent. Your transplant was a tremendous gift, one that we know you, as a recipient, are grateful for. Writing a letter to your donor family can aid in the healing of their great loss. Sharing your story also can help you in discovering what it is that is so meaningful to you with your renewed life. Read what others have said and consider writing a letter yourself.
Read Robby's inspirational story about life after a corneal transplant.
"I am writing to share with you just a little bit about my son, Nathan, who shared the gift of sight with you - something he would have gladly done... it was his nature and his personality. He was a wonderful son, a dad, brother, grandson, nephew, uncle, cousin and friend to many."
"I am so thankful your family who suffered such a devastating loss chose to reach out beyond your grief to give other people such precious gifts. I recently received a cornea from your loved one. Besides a great improvement in my vision, I feel your generosity helps me strive for more purpose in my own life."
