“Losing your vision is an overwhelming and isolating experience.”
Blindness doesn’t discriminate – it can happen to anyone at any time. For Bec, her journey with vision impairment started at birth.
Bec was born at only 26 weeks and sadly lost most of her vision from the day she was born. It was devastating.
But Bec is a fighter and despite having very little vision, she went on to accomplish incredible things.
However when Bec was only 25 years old tragedy struck… Bec’s retina detached and suddenly she was left with no vision at all.
Almost instantly Bec sank into a deep depression.
After years of suffering, Bec made the life-changing decision to apply for a Guide Dog.
“I thought, I’ve got to get back up. I can’t let this beat me.” said Bec “It was at that point I got in contact with Guide Dogs Queensland.”
We so desperately want to help Bec by pairing her with Guide Dog ‘Steffi’, but we need your help.
A sweet natured and determined girl, ‘Steffi’ is completing her Guide Dog training. She will be a perfect fit for Bec.
That’s where you come in.
With your generous support, ‘Steffi’ can be the guiding light Bec needs. The $50,000 we are trying to raise, with your help, will ensure ‘Steffi’ can complete her ongoing intensive training to be a Guide Dog.
Every young person deserves the opportunity to experience all that life has to offer. Guide Dog ‘Steffi’ is ready and willing to give her all to Bec.
Will you help them?
