Grateful VISION USA patient shows appreciation

May 7, 2012

AOA member support of VISION USA means so much to the individuals the program serves. A grateful patient showed her gratitude to Nancy Herlevich, O.D., of Florida for her philanthropic service to her community.

“Dear VISION USA, Just wanted to thank you for being there. I had my eye exam and received new glasses from Dr. Herlevich. She was very nice and the staff was wonderful and friendly. I’m not used to being on the receiving end of assistance. But they treated me just as any other client. Thanks to each and every one who works at VISION USA! Your organization made a difference in my life!”

A staggering number of Americans — nearly one in two — have fallen into poverty or are scraping by on earnings that classify them as low income.

So many of these individuals do not have health insurance and cannot afford life’s basic necessities, let alone the cost of routine eye care.

These issues coupled with the nation’s current economic woes have increased the need for the care that VISION USA provides.

Give back to your community by making your gift to VISION USA today at www.aoafoundation.org/give.

Or join Dr. Herlevich by providing your services pro-bono. Sign up to be a VISION USA provider by emailing visionusa@aoa.org.
