A Story of Sight

  • Cornea Recipient Roger

    Recipients // 06-09-2022

    Donor Family,

    My name is Roger and I am semi-retired.  We have 2 adult sons and I am interested in working with Habitat for Humanity as a volunteer builder.

    I suffered from a disease in the cornea of my eyes that blurred my vision.  The disease required a cornea implant which was possible from the cornea tissue from your family.

    Thanks to your donor gift - my life improved through the gift of vision.  Years of suffering with blurry vision kept me from hobbies and interests that are now possible.

    I am grateful to the generous donor who made my life so much better.

    Gratefully,

    Roger
