The gift of sight

Christine Main thumb medium340

She always wanted to help people. She was a giving girl right up to the end when she donated her eyes.

In February 2012 Christine Main suffered from a major unexplained stroke at only 32, leaving her left side paralysed, turning her world upside down. With determination Christine was able to exceed all recovery expectations; regaining the ability to walk, improving speech and increasing dexterity. Seven weeks on, the underlying cause of stroke was identified as advanced stage cancer.
