THE GIFTOF SIGHT

           MANY GIFTS WE TAKE FOR                           GRANTED!  EYE SIGHT IS ONE!
           CAN YOU IMAGININE WHAT IT IS
           TO BE BLIND; NOT TO SEE THE                     WORLD AROUND YOU.  THIS IS 
           IS THE WORLD OF MANY!
           TO HAVE SEEN ONCE, AND THEN  
           NO MORE!  SUCH IS THE REALITY 
           OF PERSONS WHO HAVE  CATAR-  
           ACTS, AND DO NOT HAVE THE                       MEANS TO RESOLVE THIS HEALTH
           PROBLEM!!

           THE CLINICA MAXEÑA MAKES 
           THIS POSSIBLE.  FOR 30 YEARS
           THE CLINICA MAXEÑA HAS                           HOSTED OTHALMOLOGISTS
           FROM MONTANA AND CALIFORNIA
           TO PROVIDE THIS SERVICE.  IF                     THE PATIENT CAN  PROVIDE SOME
           FINANCIAL ASSIST THIS MAKES 
           POSSIBLE FOR OTHERS.  THE                       TEAM FROM MONTANA IS                             PRESENT THIS WEEK. "THANK                     YOU"
