Re:SUPPORT GROUP FOR PARENTS,FAMILIES & FRIENDS OF VISUALLY IMPAIRED CHILDREN



Hi Everyone,

My name is Jackie, I am 30 Years old. My mother was diagnosed with RP when she was 17 yrs old. She went totally blind when I was around 6. She is amazing!!!!!! She raised both my brother and myself and pretty much my 3 cousins who were about the same ages. She can do things that just amaze me. She does not have a dog, althoght I think she should, but the woman is truely amazing. Recently, however she has fallen into a bit of a funk and I think a large part of that is that I recently got married and she was nto able to see me. Are there any support groups that anyone knows about? We live in Long Island, New York and I would be willing to travel a bit to take her to meet other RP patients. I think it would be great for both of us. Please get back to me when you get a chance. Thank you for your help in advance.

Jackie Thienel
