“It's hard to imagine the impact and toll that vision loss can take on one's life unless you have witnessed it first hand. I watched my friend, over almost two decades, go from driving a car to almost complete blindness. At the same time, I observed the impact that Lighthouse of Central Florida had on his life, helping him cope and adapt through strategies, tools, and mindset. It's my honor and pleasure to support the mission and vision of Lighthouse of Central Florida and Lighthouse Works.”
