A Link for Veterans
The use of asbestos has hurt thousands of individuals and their families, so we've made it our mission to meet their needs. That's why we provide free information, resources and personal assistance to anyone affected by mesothelioma and asbestos exposure.
The real problem of blindness is not the loss of eyesight. The real problem is the misunderstanding and lack of information that exists. If a blind person has proper training and opportunity, blindness can be reduced to a physical nuisance.
