Debi Toews

Cornea recipient

"Without your gift, I would have lost the important parts of my life forever."

Debi's vision is vital in her vocation as an attorney and in participating in the activities that bring her joy. She was gradually losing her ability to see, and without a corneal transplant, she feared she would become blind. Thanks to a generous donor, her vision is fully restored. She says in a letter to her donor family, "There are no words that can express my gratitude to you," she said in a letter to her donor family. "I am expecting my first grandchild … and I look forward to being able to see my grandchild as she/he grows up." Thank you to everyone that helps SightLife unlock life's possibilities for those with corneal disease.

Debi's story — in her own words.
