THE STORY:

Yes it is true, I will be once again riding in the Gran Fondo raising money for The Seeing Eye on September 7th!!!!! For me The Seeing Eye is the greatest place on earth!!

 

I am aiming to raise at least $1500.00, if I do that I will dye my hair purple with glitter on the day of the big ride. (I will take pictures and post them).

UPDATE:  Oh my goodness, I have reached my goal and actually am over it!!!!  Now, if I can raise up to $2000.00 Astro will be wearing purple as well!!!

 

 


Growing up with vision loss was very difficult to handle.
Every step I took and every move I made required me to think even more about what I was doing and how I did it.
For a person with vision you can just get up and walk out that door, for a person with vision loss or no vision it takes so  many more steps in your mind and thoughts with hopes that you walk out that door without tripping or walking into something.
Yes, I had a great childhood and wonderful teenage years, I got married and raised 2 beautiful and awesome kids who are just as amazing and outgoing like their mom, ha ha.
But as I got older my vision had gotten worse and I lost a lot of independence and confidence. As time went on I would always dream that one day there would be a miracle and I will again one day have perfect vision.
Well, let me tell you that the dream came true and a miracle happened.
I heard about this place called  The Seeing Eye in Morris Town, NJ. I did a lot of research then applied, soon after that I was accepted.
On September 1, 2007 I walked through the front door of The Seeing Eye and since then my life has never been the same.
I have done more in the past 7 years then I ever thought imaginable. I have gained all of my confidence and independence back. Having a Seeing Eye dog has changed my life, it gave me my life back. I now have vision and  am able to see in a different way.
The reason why I am riding: I want to be able to help other people with vision loss have their dreams come true and let them know that there is life after blindness.
I always tell my clients that if I had one wish to come true that the wish would be not to have good vision again but to be a really great singer and be a rock star!!!! That my friends is the absolute truth! Note to my sister, she always would wish she could give me her eyes, listen sista, keep um cause I don’t need them. Wohoo!!!
Please consider donating to help others walk along their path with confidence.
 

Did you ever hear the slogan Hitch your wagon to a star?  Well Astro is my star and together now we are just soaring through life!

Please help others who are without vision, every dollar counts!

I would like to give a special thanks to all of the people who have made a donation!  So many friends, co-workers and family as well as some people I don't even know have made a donation!

I love you all!!!

Donations can be as small as $10, if you donate you will go straight to heaven for sure!
