The decision to write to a transplant recipient is very personal. As a family member of an eye tissue donor, you may or may not decide to write a note to the transplant recipient(s); it is your choice. Some recipients may reply to your letter, others may make the personal choice not to write to you at this time. Transplant recipients may not respond right away because their sight may not stabilize for several months. Many others have said they feel overwhelmed with emotion and have difficulty expressing their gratitude in writing.
