White Cane can bring independence

Bosma Enterprises - 11/24/2017 7:24:54 AM

The white cane is not only a tool, it is a symbol of freedom and independence. I remember the first time I embraced using a white cane. I got tired of depending on everyone else to take me places and worrying that I could never go anywhere alone. I was tired of explaining to people why I was walking slowly or why I might have bumped into them and feeling a need to apologize. However, once I started to carry a cane, I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. I finally felt ok telling the world that I am a person with a visual impairment.

Vision Loss Didn't Stop My Career Goals

Lise Pace - 6/27/2016 3:37:31 PM

Years after my diagnosis and losing my career in finance due to vision loss, I was at home waiting for the other shoe to drop. And when it finally did, it was devastating. The progressive loss of my eyesight, its emotional toll and the loss of my independence had caused me to become a shell of who I was just a decade before.  In hopes of reclaiming some semblance of the life I once knew, I decided to look for a service opportunity where I might be able to use my skills for good, while rebuilding my confidence.
