Donna Gallagher expresses heartfelt thanks to the glaucoma education, advocacy, and research communities. As a full-time caregiver to her mom, a glaucoma patient for more than 40 years, Ms. Gallagher, has experienced this sight-stealing disorder first hand.
The people that support organizations that research and invest time and expertise and intellectual power for the advancement of cures for things such as glaucoma are awesome.
I think that people that donate their time, their money their heartfelt concern—whether it's being a volunteer, or writing a check, or attending a fundraiser-all of that is such a critical part of what is necessary to make it move forward. Until you live it day-to-day, until you experience how it affects not only the life of the person that has such disease but all of the extended family, well-you can hear it in my voice, I don't know how to say thank you.
