The decision to write to a transplant recipient is a very personal one. As a family member of a donor, you may or may not decide to write a note to the transplant recipients. The North Carolina Eye Bank will honor any decision you make. All letters are reviewed by our family care coordinator to ensure confidentiality and facilitate forwarding your correspondence to the appropriate person.
Some recipients may respond by sending a letter or card. Other recipients may choose not to respond to you at that time. Remember that writing is a very personal decision. Many transplant recipients have said they feel overwhelmed with emotion and have difficulty expressing their gratitude in writing.
Suggestions for your letter:
