Communicating with Transplant Recipients

As a service to donor families, Eversight acts as an intermediary between donor families and corneal transplant recipients wishing to communicate with each other. To protect the privacy of both parties, we forward letters or cards anonymously unless both parties sign a confidentiality waiver that allows their identities to be revealed.

When receive correspondence from a donor family intended for a recipient, we review the document to ensure confidentiality and then forward it to the recipient in a sealed envelope to open when they are ready. Some recipients may send a note back to the donor family; however, in many cases, they find it difficult to express their gratitude in writing or may not be able to write back due to poor health or other personal reasons.
