Paying it forward
At three years old, Cameron Whittle began experiencing photosensitivity, eye irritation, draining and swelling. At 13, Cameron was diagnosed with keratoconus and, over time, the disease led to vision loss and cornea tissue scarring.
In 2014, after completing his freshman year at Goldey-Beacom, Cameron had a successful transplant surgery and regained vision in his left eye.
In 2018, Cameron was selected by the Eye Bank Association of America (EBAA) as the face for National Eye Donation Month, representing cornea transplant recipients from across the country and advocating eye donation!
