PROGRAM
Ann Otter - Lions Eye Bank
Focuses of Lions Club: diabetes, world hunger, childhood cancer.  In 1925, Hellen Keller charged Lions Club with helping the blind.  
Ann was diagnosed with a condition that would lead to vision loss.  She went through years of difficulty and pain.  She needed a corneal transplant and got one in 1998.  She became an avid quilter with her newly improved vision.  She became involved with the Lions eye bank in 2000.  She now participates in events all across Wisconsin to raise awareness for eye organ tissue donations.  Ann donated $5 to our club in appreciation of her experiences.  She also shared the quilt she is currently working on with names and pictures of people who have donated tissue.
