Lawrence Villanueva and Daniel Delos Santos receive AJ Perez's corneas


042611-aj_main.jpg28-year-old Lawrence Villanueva and 8-year-old Daniel Delos Santos are the grateful recipients of AJ Perez’s corneas after the actor passed away last April 16 and his family agreed to donate them to those in need.

Lawrence described that his vision started to deteriorate three years ago. He is thankful to the Aj and his family. “God really works in different ways talaga,” he said.

Sarah Delos Santos, Daniel’s mother, on the other hand said her family kept on praying for a donor for her son for they feared he might go blind as time passed because of his cornea ulcer in his right eye. And God has answered their prayers through AJ. Daniel could only utter words of thanks for his new cornea. “Salamat po sa nanay ni AJ dahil po sa cornea ni Kuya AJ makakakita na din po ako.”

Lawrence had his eye operation last Thursday while Daniel will be having his cornea transplant today.

AJ Perez’s body will be laid to rest this afternoon at the Manila Memorial Park in Paranaque.
