Meegale was diagnosed with keratoconus, a disease that thins the cornea and causes significant visual impairment. When he learned he would need a vision-saving transplant, he was 28 years old. He was looking forward to a great career and planning for a wedding and growing family. But he was concerned about surgery.

After a week of gathering information, talking with family and friends, and praying, he decided to have the surgery. In March 2010, he received a vision-saving corneal transplant. With his sight restored, Meegale can now live a happy, healthy life and watch his three young children grow.

β€œThe decision to have this surgery has allowed me to further my career and experience the joys of life, my family,” Meegale said. β€œI have since signed up to be an organ, eye and tissue donor, and pray every night thanking those who also have chosen to become an organ and tissue donor.”
