Annmarie Miles

Annmarie Miles proudly holds her laptop after receiving a picture of her donor from his mother. She formed a relationship with her donor’s mother after RMLEB facilitated letter writing between the two. "It has been an amazing experience. I am so grateful to my donor’s family and to RMLEB for putting us in contact with each other. The experience for me has become about a lot more than restored sight. It’s about two families who have been brought together - one given sight and hope and the other given some comfort and joy." Annmarie was diagnosed with keratoconus in her early 20s but believes she suffered the effects for many years before. She had her transplant in March 2010 and while she is still recovering, she notices significant improvement in her vision. "I am looking forward to not needing large print music and large views on the computer.
