Six weeks before graduating from college Brenda started losing her eyesight due to macular degeneration, an eye disease that causes vision loss particularly in the center of the field of vision. Over the next 9 months each day entailed new adjustments to the ongoing progressive loss of her vision as well as the mental health challenges of depression over her loss.
