Diagnosis: Chronic Blefaritis Rosacea Bilateralis
Origin: Chile
Cost of Treatment: $25,000
Age: 13

Marjorie suffered from a viral disease that created ulcers in the eyes, gradually destroying her cornea. Knowing that there was no hope for treatment in Chile, her mother brought her to the US in May 2001 in hopes that her daughter could receive treatment before becoming blind. Marjorie underwent a successful treatment in 2002 that restored her vision.

Today at 25, Marjorie is a teacher, has her own family and is healthy thanks to YOU, her Heroes, who made it all possible with your support!
