A Comment from Richard F.
Richard is the director of development in the Rocky Mountain Region, of “Foundation Fighting Blindness”. I thought his words were very kind and, I decided to write it in my journal. His comment goes like this.
Carmen,I can tell that your blog is very personal and insightful to what it is like for Preston, you and your family. That's great! This will give others of visually challenged children an opportunity to see what it is like and how they can be empowered and rise above these challenges. Life goes on!Could you send me an outline or summary of your book and what it will cover and maybe even an excerpt from the book to read?That way I can get a flavor of how you write and your perspective.
Thanks for being a light in the darkness!
Shortly after his comment was posted on my blog, I became a board member of the Foundation.
I had attended a chapter meeting in the early summer time, and had so much respect for the people and the Doctor that I had meet. They are working so hard to make a difference.
I am honored to be on the board! I know that it does not directly deal with my son Preston’s eye issues, but it is still low vision and blindness.
