Meet our awesome volunteers


Cassandra is a bi-lateral cornea recipient and received both corneas in 2008. She works fulltime as a Benefit & Retirement Manager. In her spare time, she and her 2 children work very hard in the transplant community to raise awareness to the importance of restored life, sight and mobility. She is the recipient of Eversight of Michigan’s Shared Vision Award in 2010, Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s Shining Star Award in 2013, and in 2014 Cassandra represented cornea transplant recipients for the first time ever at the Transplant Games of America for Team Michigan and took home a gold medal. She has spoken to countless organizations and groups and thousands of people about her transplant journey and is excited to bring her experience and dedication to Second Chance at Life.
