Corresponding with Your Donor Family.

Correspondance Letters

As a cornea recipient, you may wish to communicate with your donor's family. Many recipients struggle with the decision to write to their donor family. They may not know how to say "thank you" for such a precious gift. But donor families do appreciate and often find comfort in knowing that the transplant was successful and has improved someone else's life.

Lions VisionGift encourages and facilitates all correspondence between donor families and cornea recipients. We protect the identity of both the donor families and the recipients. If you would like to write a letter to your donor's family, please use the following guidelines, which are recommended by the National Donor Family Council.
