Ms. Ashley Fletcher, 33, has suffered from a pre-existing eye-disease for several years. Fletcher, who wors for the Kutting Korner Salon in Hot Springs Village, AR, has been unable to obtain medical insurance coverage because of this condition.
With the assistance of Hot Springs Village Evening Lions, Fletcher had her first surgical procedure in early October at Mid-South Lions Sight And Hearing Service's Hamilton Eye Institute in Memphis, TN. She recently had surgery on one eye and will have surgery on the other eye later this year.
Ashley helped Kutting Korner host a putting contest at the Village Lions October golf tournament and will attend a meeting of the club soon.
The HSVE fundraising efforts over the years allows people like Ashley to get the special care they need at Mid-South facility in Memphis and through the Wallace Eye Center and St. Joseph Regional Medical Center in Hot Springs at no cost to the patient.
Members of the club are proud to be in a position to save the sight of a person who would not be able to receive this care without the Lions and Mid-South.
