My Story

A year ago I accepted a position at a Kansas City nonprofit, Saving Sight, because I was compelled by their mission. On the night of December 4, 2003 my step sister(11) was involved in a car accident that took her life. Missouri Lions Eye (Saving Sight) recovered and coordinated the transplant of both her corneas; a connection that came to light in my onboarding where I learned the history of our organization. My family is forever grateful that our loss was able to bring sight to not only one but two recipients.
