MID-SOUTH LIONS:
GIVING THE GIFT
S OF
SIGHT AND HEARING
EVERY DAY OF THE YEAR!
   

    Dear Mid-South Lions:

I can't thank you enough for the gift of sight.  I can see out of my left eye where I was completely blind.  I went to the Boozman Hof Clinic here in Rogers, AR and was treated very well.  They  were kind and very knowledgeable about my circumstance.  My cataract was very thick and dark, and they had to cut open my eye to cut it out.  Very professional staff with wonderful hearts.

     I just wanted to write you a sincere thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I will always be grateful for your help.

     Sincerely,

     Renee D.

AND HERE'S ANOTHER...


Some additional information on Ms Evelyn.  Friends and a few of her church members tell me the difference in her in truly daylight and dark.  She has had vision issues for 21 years with health and slowly loosing her vision.  She had not driven in 7 years.  Before the surgery and eye evaluations were started she appeared depressed, lethargic, quite and withdrawn.  Today, bright, energetic, happy, full of life and vinegar, driving, and her husband says she is like a 16 year old.  To talk to her is a very uplifting experience because of her joy of having vision without glasses of any type.  High praise for everyone at Hamilton especially Drs Kiner and Costo.

FROM ONE OF OUR PATIENTS:

There is still swelling, he said it would go down in a few days. It was an awesome experience watching my eye being made from start with liquid wax being squirted into a form in my eye socket to him painting it perfectly. Dr. Rob Thomas is a wonderful Dr.& Artist. Please let everyone in the lions know I think they are absolutely amazing people & I believe all of you are angels, Here on earth.

THANK YOU MRS. DIANNE (JACKSONVILLE, AR LIONS CLUB)

FROM THE FAMILY OF ONE OF OUR PATIENTS:

Amanda, It is hard to put into words how much we appreciate the Mid-South Lions Organization and yourself as their (Program) Director.  Joan had her first cataract surgery on her worst eye, left, June 14. She was completely unable to read the eye chart.  She was even unable to read a large "E" that covered a 8 X 11 inch posted card at 6 foot.  Her vision the day following the surgery was already 20/30 and they said it would improve even more.   White color became white again instead of yellow.  July 24 she had her right eye done which was not quite as bad.

The results after surgery was almost 20/20 in both eyes with 1.75 reading glasses required.  We, her family did not even know she was that bad.  You have to know her to appreciate what I am saying. 
She does not like to make an issue over her problems.  She picked up her corrective glasses, supplied by the local Lions Club, about a week age and is now performing things she has not done in several years.

Your and your organization are answered prayers and we thank you again.

Rex "BossHawg" Stotts and Joan Stotts Springdale, Arkansas
