The Kansas Eye Bank partners with many of the hospices in Wichita and the surrounding areas to make Giving the Gift of Sight an option for hospice patients and their families. Without this partnership many hospice families would never be made aware that they have the chance to give this precious gift.
If you have a loved one receiving hospice care and you do not see your hospice listed below, but would like to learn more about donation, contact Bev Harstine, RN BSN, Donor Services Manager at 316.260.8220.
In many cases hospice patients can donate corneas for transplant or other eye tissue even when they can not make any other organ or tissue donation. Cornea donation restores sight to the recipient! What an amazing gift!
