Dusti Sparks

Cornea recipient

Dusti deals with her challenges head on and never gives up. After losing her ability to walk in a motorcycle accident she maintained her independence and carried on with the activities that made her fulfilled. Then, Dusti was diagnosed with Fuch's Dystrophy and contracted a herpes virus in her cornea. Dusti said "Life had knocked me down again and I was getting tired of it." Now with the generous gift of a cornea donor she can see once more. "If I could talk to my donor's family,," she said, "I would try to express the miracle they and their loved one gave me."
