A new Support Group member recently shared:
"You were right when I called you [VIPS]. I was lost … [Then] I came to the Support Group and I felt all the support from you guys. [Now] I have someone to talk to. I think I’m able to deal with it [vision loss] as well as I am because of finding you guys and having you guys to comfort and support me."
