Benny

Benny developed Macular Degeneration in the last five years. As her vision loss increased, Benny gave up many things that were important to her, like driving, reading, and cooking. Then she decided to get help and came to the Lighthouse for our Independent Living Skills Program. Since her training, Benny is back to reading, cooking, or doing many things she enjoys—she has returned to living her life with purpose and independence.
