As a way to celebrate Mother's Day, the American Foundation for the Blind has released A Mother and Daughter Story on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyaSj3R1nuA.
This moving video, featuring Esther Smith and her daughter Gwen shows us one family's experience coping with macular degeneration. And Esther and Gwen are not alone in their experience. This story captures the feelings of many families who are facing vision loss. If you or someone you love has recently been diagnosed with an eye disease such as glaucoma, macular degeneration or cataracts, I encourage you to share this video with them. It has been posted on YouTube to make it easier for you to e-mail to friends and family, or to embed on your blogs. An accessible version of the video can be found on the AFB Senior Site: http://www.afb.org/seniorsite.
Please take five minutes to watch it, and share it with others. Happy Mother's Day to all!
