Manila Philippines - The sudden death of young actor AJ Perez came as a shock to the entire entertainment industry, but his death is not all that sad and full of grief, in fact his death also bring hope to others.
The Family of AJ Perez have decided to donate his corneas to the eye bank. At first her mother would have wanted to donate his corneas to Marian devotee Fatima Soriano, who was born blind. But because of her condition they are still waiting for the advice of Fatima's doctor before they can proceed with the cornea transplant.
But in line with their wating a eight year old boy named Daniel de los Santos is scheduled to undergo a corneal transplant today. He is one of the recipients of AJ Perez's corneas.
Like most boys his age, Daniel is into basketball and video games. But unlike his playmates, he has trouble seeing clearly because his right eye is suffering from corneal ulcer.
This is the reason why he has a white dot on his right eye that blurs his vision. Daniel has had this condition since he was a baby.
His mother, Sarah Delos Santos, said she has long prayed for Daniel to get a corneal transplant but he can't receive corneas of adults because of his young age.
Daniel said he is happy because he will finally be able to read well and will have an easier time in school.
