Transplant Recipient Authors Children's Book

Peter Searle, a corneal transplant recipient, recently published a children's book that he wrote with Dustin Desany. Searle dedicated the book to the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank, and plans to donate portions of the book's sales to RMLEB as well.

“The Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank rescued my life, and so many others, from what would have been complete blindness,” said Searle. “Not a day goes by without my memory of that reality.”

The book is titled "The Road to the Bananas," and follows two earthworms, brothers Paul and Carl, who venture inside their neighborhood grocery store on their birthday and meet a variety of other creatures along the way.
