Lions Eye Bank of Delaware Valley hosted its annual District Governors' Night on July 23, 2015 at its office in Philadelphia, PA. District Governors, who are newly elected regional leaders from Lions Club International, learned about the history of the Eye Bank and new developments in cornea transplantation. These regional leaders represent thousands of Lions Clubs Volunteers from southeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
We were privileged to have two keynote speakers this year including the Eye Bank's Medical Director, Dr. Sadeer B. Hannush and a local cornea recipient, Lydia.
Lydia, from Warminster, PA, gave a truly inspirational presentation. Each guest listened attentively as she shared her story of receiving a second chance of sight. She closed by expressing sincere gratitude, "I don't know how to say thank you for a gift that is so life altering. How do I find the words to express what is beyond expression? I will have to just say thank you to Lions Eye Bank of Delaware Valley, thank you to my donor and my donor's family, thank you to my doctors who worked tirelessly with me and do so with every patient."
We encourage you to learn more about Lions Eye Bank of Delaware Valley and cornea recipients like Lydia. Help us share the importance of eye, tissue and organ donation with family and friends.
