Psst… Pass it on! We Have Stories of Hope
September 111, 2014
This month we launch the book “The Way We See It, A Fresh Look at Vision Loss”. This book, as you will read on our web site and Facebook page, is an amazing anthology of stories written by clients and friends of Vision Loss Resources. The purpose is to share with the sighted world that losing your vision or living with vision loss is not the end of the world.

This year, Vision Loss Resources celebrates 100 years of creating a community of service skills and support for people with vision loss in the seven county area of Minneapolis and Saint Paul! In 1914, Frederick Parks Nash, Grace Swift Strong, Thomas Schall (who would later become a senator) and Mrs. Edward Mortimer Van Cleve, along with other concerned citizens, started the Minneapolis Society for the Blind.

People often ask me how I ended up working in the field of Vision Rehabilitation. The short answer is: I was visually impaired as a child. As I look back, I see my path is a zig zag. The long answer is the way most people are led to their life’s work, and my story is no exception. My visual impairment is due to albinism.
