Healing Through Donation

For many donor families, the decision to donate is the first step in the healing process. Most families find comfort in knowing that part of their loved one will live on through someone else. It can also help some families to know that their loved one’s donation has dramatically improved someone else's life and the lives of their loved ones.

For many cornea transplant recipients, they can also feel grief and sadness knowing their sight was restored as a result of someone else’s loss.

Many donor families and recipients find comfort by joining grief support groups.
