“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision” ~ Helen Keller
I cannot say enough about this Eye Bank, or those that work within their building’s walls. Through them, and through their expertise, because of my Donor’s wonderful gift, I have been able to keep my eye, and I can see once again out of that eye with almost-perfect vision.
Please take a few minutes out of your day, and watch this video regarding NC (North Carolina) Eye Bank*, and get a feel for their passion, compassion and their mission. And see a fellow “Corneal Transplant Brother” express his thanks to his Donor’s mother after she tells her heart-wrenching story of donating her daughter’s eyes and what it means to her.
If you wish to know more about the process of Eye Donation, or more about the facility, just feel free to use the contact information at the end of the video.
Here is one also for NCEB. Pretty much the same, but more expansive. And more to the story of the mother, her Donor daughter, and her Recipient.
“There is no better way to thank God for your sight than by giving a helping hand to someone in the dark.” ~ Helen Keller
