Patricia Ruth Maher, local writer and a member and volunteer with A Little Help will present a free talk entitled “Macular Degeneration: Your Life is not Over!” at the First Presbyterian Church, 7 Poncha Blvd. at 1 p.m. Oct. 10.
Maher will speak of her experiences and adventures with macular degeneration and the results of her research regarding this disease, common to seniors.
An extensive display of her recommended magnifiers, binoculars, kitchen tools, catalogues, suppliers, etc. will be featured.
“I am often asked to share what I have learned and have agreed to repeat this program, as eye specialists are simply too busy telling macular degeneration sufferers how they can continue to live active lives,” Maher said.
Pencils and paper for note-taking will be available and A Little Help will provide light refreshments.
