The FLY Foundation is pleased to share the following testimonial from its first grant recipieint, who recently received a prosthetic eye. On request, the Foundation will preserve the anonymity of its recipients to ensure confidentiality of their sensitive medical and financial circumstances.
"When I was diagnosed with cancer I didn't know who to turn to. I felt lost, alone and misunderstood. The FLY Foundation changed that. They welcomed me with open arms as if I were family... only caring about how they could help me get through this. They helped me deal not only with my cancer diagnosis but also with the loss of my eye. I will always appreciate what The FLY Foundation has done for me and I will never forget the new friends I have made."
-Carlos, Age 33
