“You will be able to lead a good life.”
Three months into retirement, I experienced a rare condition and became legally blind with low vision. Becoming blind was the biggest challenge I’ve ever faced. Being able to have the resources of CLB to help me has been critical to my ability to adjust to blindness and be able to thrive in life. I can’t thank CLB enough for all the work that it does for the blind and low vision community and what it has done for me personally.

“I could learn and have the support necessary to be there for my daughter.”
She wasn’t born visually impaired, so not knowing anything, having CLB there to guide us through those processes meant a lot for me as a parent. I could learn and have the support necessary to be there for my daughter. I always look forward to meeting other parents of visually impaired kids because not only do we have each other for support, we have each other to learn from. That’s a huge blessing about being a part of CLB.

“I am very thankful.”
It is fearsome losing one’s eyesight, and CLB is a connection which does more than offer a helping hand. It offers education at many levels, and approaches instruction with respect and dignity. I am very thankful.
“CLB events helped us realize we were not alone.”
CLB has been a tremendous resource for our daughter. CLB events provided a peer group for our daughter and helped us realize that we were not alone, but a member of a community – A community that not only shared similar worries and concerns – but a community that has high expectations for what any visually impaired person can achieve and become!
