aim of sensitizing the public about the need for Cornea donors to help those with reversible blindness. ??I pledged my cornea that day and what that means is when I leave this earth I willingly donate my cornea to help give the gift of sight especially as I would no longer be needing it….what are your views on this and becoming a donor in general? I would really appreciate your kind feedback so we can start the conversation…will you be willing to do it for a loved one or a stranger?
She continued saying: ”Cornea is the delicate tissue responsible for the control and focus of light into the eyes.
- This tissue can be damaged by trauma or infection resulting in corneal blindness. This type of blindness is reversible with the transplant of cornea tissues from a donor upon
demise to a recipient.
Now I see that by pledging my cornea, I will leave behind a legacy of love and selflessness.
I see that I can live for something greater than myself.
I see that I can contribute positively to humanity and make the world better than I left it.
NOW I SEE
….CAN YOU? Pledge your cornea today!
