At 19 years old, Robby was blinded in one eye following an unprovoked shooting. Over the years he’s had several procedures to save his sight, including cornea transplants. With his sight restored, Robby takes in the beauty of nature. Through the calm he sees in nature and thanks to his donors, he has a new view of forgiveness.

Living organ donations are common. Yearly, nearly 6,000 living organ donations occur. That’s about four out of every 10 donations. Learn about living organ donation from Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) students and Washington Regional Transplant Community.
While alive, you can donate a lung, part of the pancreas, or part of the intestines. These organs don’t regrow. Both the portion you donate and the portion that remains are fully functional. Learn more from Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) students and Washington Regional Transplant Community.
