Lions Eye Bank of District 2-T1

The Lions Eye Bank of District 2-T1 has been serving the communities of the Texas panhandle for decades.

Betty Becannon
Cornea Recipient

Betty Becannon was rapidly going blind; her life as wife, mother, and full time nurse was more and more difficult.

But two cornea transplants changed the course of her life.  “I can’t express how thankful I have been for these two families to have chosen donation for their loved ones so that I could see again,” said Betty.

In addition to evaluating, releasing, and distributing tissue for transplant, Lions Eye Bank of District 2-T1 offers health care professionals educational opportunities at civic events, health fairs, home health care agencies, hospice facilities, hospitals, the Office of the Medical Investigator, and public and private organizations.

The Eye Bank works in conjunction with the surrounding community to host outreach programs aimed at increasing donation awareness. This TBI branch also recognizes national donor programs, such as:

  • National Eye Donor Month in March
  • National Donate Life Month in April
  • National Minority Awareness Day in August
  • National Donor Sabbath in November
