The Michael Dominak Story

Michael was legally blind in his right eye. He was finding it more and more difficult to read, play and keep up with his grandchildren. Now, thanks to the Eye Bank, his grandchildren are having a hard time keeping up with him.

Executive Director, Debbie May-Johnson, and Ambassador and corneal Recipient, Deanna Hartman, discuss the importance of eye, organ and tissue donation.

The Cleveland Eye-Bank has two commercials airing on Fox 8. One features a corneal recipient, Deanna, with her 2 daughters (above). The second features the family of Michael, a 19 year old man that made his wishes known to his family that he wanted to be a donor when he passed away.

The Cleveland Eye Bank is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring sight by providing tissue for transplantation, research, and teaching. The Cleveland Eye Bank serves almost 5 million people and over 60 area hospitals.
