Live it Give it.. Life

Those beautiful eyes. For those unaware, Mason's cornea donation has become a reality. Mason's gift stretching across the country, one recipient in New York and one in California.
It was heartwarming that 2 recipients spanning across the country will hopefully be able to see again. Last year alone, more than 46,000 people were in need of a transplant due to corneal disease or blindness. We pray for successful transplants in both recipients. Those beautiful eyes.

What a wonderful gift to give. Just more examples of how Mason and his family have given and touched so many lives in so many ways. For myself, I have been touched and blessed to be allowed to follow and be a part of this family's very emotional and personal journey. Through this I have renewed my faith in God, in People and in Life in General. They have shown me how to look at the blessing in life even in the most painful and heart wrenching moments and to notice and celebrate those little moments as well as the big moments in life. I want to say thank you to Eddie and Andrea and the rest of Mason's family for this blessing and gift.

How wonderful that Mason lives on in such a very tangible way, too..always in our hearts but now he has given the gift of sight to two people, as well. That is just incredible. Thanks for sharing that story.

That is so nice to hear. I was already a donor, but after the celebration I came home with my bracelet, got online and double checked. What a gift to give.
