Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like to introduce to you the Ultimate Calling Card. Used as a tool to engage the people outside of your family and friends that you come in contact with on a regular basis, but never think to ask about donation. Keep a few of them in your wallet or purse and hand them out in your daily interactions with your favorite bank teller, barista at the coffee shop you frequent, your hairdresser, your child’s teacher- it’s a light way to bring up a heavy topic as we work to create a donor friendly state. The front of the cards reads: “I mustache you a question” followed by “Are you an eye, organ and tissue donor?” Then directing them to our website to sign up TODAY!
Thank you to everyone involved with making our Night for Sight and Life event a tremendous success.

Cassandra's Story: A Corneal Transplant Recipient's Journey to Sight
When Cassandra Perry was diagnosed with a progressive cornea disease in 2008, it was more than just her vision on the line. As a single mother of two children, Cassandra was the sole source of support for her family. She knew she needed to save her sight, and to do so, her only option was to undergo bilateral cornea transplants.
Today, Cassandra and her family are thriving, thanks to the generosity of two eye donors, dedicated medical professionals and the Michigan Eye-Bank. To show their gratitude, Cassandra and her children, Liz and Jack, are devoted Eye-Bank volunteers who work hard to raise awareness about the Michigan Eye-Bank and the importance of registering as eye, organ, and tissue donors.
