[real-eyes] Re: Support group

Hi Arnie,

The big one that I support and know most about is firststepsfortheblind.org, 
ran by our friend Cathy Pyper.  She and her husband are both blind.   They 
have monthly meetings, picnics, parties, keep a small fund to try to 
purchase inexpensive equipment for folks like canes, voice recorders, color 
identifiers that can make a world of difference and make life much easier, 
and generally make sure that a person losing their site has a network of 
friends they can count on and access to information on all the resources 
available to them as a person transitioning to a world without site.  They 
can be reached at 816-455-52    19 or from the web site above, or by writing 
directly to cpyper@xxxxxxxxxx

Hi all,
I apologize that this is not tech related specifically, but I am
wondering if you have contact information for support groups in the KC
metro for individuals who have recently lost their sight or in the
process of going blind.  Seems I recall seeing some references in the
past but cannot recall the contact persons.
Thanks
Arnie Abels
