Jeff was diagnosed with Keratoconus in the early 80’s and received a cornea transplant in each eye during that time. Over 30 years later in February 2012, the graft in his left eye died causing blindness. He received a second cornea transplant in April 2012, and his vision is once again “crystal clear.” The experience as a whole has greatly impacted his life in many positive ways. Primarily it launched his interest in serving the community as a member of Lions Club of Denver as well as programs for vision-impaired children.
Describing his photo:“I choose this photo because to me it was simply enchanting. I was fly fishing by the light of a full moon, which symbolically represented the glorious gift of sight that is typically taken for granted until it’s been compromised.”
