A Little Information

With a little information about where to start looking, some persistence and a little luck, you can pretty much figure out anything. The question is, when you do manage to dig up what you are looking for, what do you do with it?

In the case of a transplant, the recipient is given a very small amount of information about the donor. For some people, what they give you is more than enough and they want to continue to live in anonymity. I can understand that, but I wanted to know more. Without crossing any lines, I wanted to find out as much as I could. I wasn't able to find much about the donor, but what I was able to find gave me tremendous insight into his life.

I'm not sure all of this information should be available for public consumption, but I'd like to the donor of Isabella's cornea to know that I'm going to drink a beer in his honor on his birthday and on the anniversary of his donation.

Knowing what I do know, I'm sure he will appreciate that.

More to come soon...

Comments

You can write a thank you to the donor's family at anytime. The donor bank will forward it on to them. The family may find lots of comfort in knowing what a wonderful gift he gave to help his memory live on in the eyes of a precious baby girl!
