I was born with a cataract and underwent several surgeries, which gave me the best chance of having vision. The more time I spent in the hospital, the more I learned that not everyone in need of care is fortunate to receive it. I created Vision for and from Children so that other children may receive the eye surgeries and vision services they so desperately need and deserve. Millions of children are visually impaired, yet most have conditions that are easily diagnosed and corrected with access to treatment. Vision for and from Children has helped 26,330 children around the world receive the gift of sight! It is my hope that, together, you and I will enable others to see the sun and moon!
