Narrator Paul Vasey: I’d Like to introduce you to Judy Robinet, Executive Director of A Life Worth Living.”

Judy:” What would you do tomorrow if you lost your vision today. Or what if it happened to someone you loved? What would you tell them? Where would you go? How would you help? And, would it be enough?”

Narrator Paul Vasey: “Stevie Wonder, Musician, A Life Worth Living Advisor and Mentor.”

Stevie Wonder: “A Life Worth Living’s vision to produce comprehensive, state-of-the-art educational resources on living with a disability is a dream come true for me. More than ever, alcohol, drugs and suicide are tempting to solutions for youth dealing with the mounting pressures of daily life. Now add to these dangers the sudden onset of blindness. How do you restore hope when dreams are shattered?”
