This is what Helen noticed in her vision before she sought help.
People like Helen need people like you to make their journey possible.
Helen had developed cataracts – cloudy patches that form in the lens of the eye and cause blurry vision. She coped but then her vision deteriorated significantly.
“I had cataracts then lost my sight quite suddenly. Now I only see shadows,” Helen said.
Her unexpected change in vision caused Helen to reach out to Guide Dogs Queensland.
As an active traveller, Helen’s priorities are being independent and self-sufficient. She has mastered training with a Long Cane and she is hopeful for a Guide Dog one day.
“I still get out and travel a lot, so I think having a Guide Dog would be a big help with getting around,” Helen said.
I live out in the country and a Guide Dog would be a great tool for me to help with my safety when travelling and even simple tasks like crossing the road.
Helen can only be matched with a Guide Dog thanks to the support of the community. Your contribution can make a huge difference to the lives of many Queenslanders with low vision, just like Helen.
