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

Dear Donor Family,

Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your family member.

I'm writing to thank the donor and you for the gift of cornea tissue.  My right eye was seeing very little detail, not enough to provide depth perception.  But the precious donor cells fixed my scratched cornea, and I can thread a needle with ease.

Sincerely,

Evelyn

Donor Family,

Thank you so very much for your family member. My sincere condolences on the lost of your loved one.

I am a wife & grandmother and my wish was to be able to do the crafts I could not see to do anymore.

I am very grateful for your gift to me.

Dear Donor Family,

Words cannot express my overwhelming gratitude for the gift of my sight.  I am a mother to two beautiful daughters and three grandchildren and a wife as well.  Recently I learned that I had inherited a gene from my mother that was causing me to lose my eyesight rapidly.  I made the decision to have a corneal transplant so that I could see and hug my children and grandchildren and share their growing up experiences.  You have given me the ultimate gift of my sight at a huge sacrifice to your family.  I will be eternally grateful for your miraculous gift.  I will remember you always. Thank you with all my heart.
