February is Macular Degeneration Awareness Month and our guest speakers Maureen Foley and Sheila Klein, who are both currently living with macular degeneration, will give firsthand accounts of daily living with low vision. They will discuss the biggest challenges and the resources they find most helpful.

Maureen lives in Jamaica Plain, MA and is a retired COO in the pharmaceutical industry. She has a family history of wet AMD and started treatment in 2013.
 
Sheila lives in Fort Lauderdale, FL and is a retired school psychologist who specialized in working with the deaf community. She has a family history of macular degeneration and was diagnosed with dry AMD in 2013 after cataract surgery revealed the condition. She now has developed wet AMD and is receiving injections.
