Congratulations to Delena Wilson! The 2012 winner of the Heroes for Lasik. Delena was one of three finalists and ultimately chosen as the best candidate suited for the FREE LASIK procedure from Commonwealth Eye Surgery.
This is the essay that Delena’s mother wrote in to Commonwealth Eyes that grabbed our attention and made Delena one of our finalists.
Thank you again to all who entered, there are so many heroes in each of our lives that we would like to congratulate!
“I nominated my daughter, Delena Wilson, as my hero for several reasons! To start, she really needs this surgery, she’s been in eye glasses/contacts since 3rd grade!! Her husband passed away last year and his death turned all our lives upside-down. She has a 4 year old son, Jaiden who misses his daddy very much. She has had to put her grief aside in order to comfort him!
She is such a humble person and is always thinking of others. When she found out she was a finalist for this surgery, she said that no matter who won, that it was wonderful of Commonwealth Eye Surgery to offer this and that someone who really needed the opportunity to see better would get it!! I have never won anything in my life like this and to win it for my daughter is a miracle from God!! I give Him all the glory!! And all my thanks to Him and Commonwealth Eye Surgery!! In His name!!”
