Sight Loss Support Fund
Rana Arnold was born legally blind, suffering from two degenerative eye diseases. But that did not stop her from attending college, raising two sons with her husband Steven F. Arnold, teaching dance, working for Easter Seals and an audio-books company, and running a March of Dimes campaign. In 1976, Rana and her family moved to State College. In 1982, she and optometrist Fred Carlin founded Sight-Loss Support Group of Central Pennsylvania. Rana raised start-up funds for the organization by collecting pledges and swimming in the Toftrees Pool. This fund supports Sight-Loss Support Group of Central Pennsylvania in its mission of improving the quality of life of those who have or are threatened with visual impairment or legal blindness. They offer a supportive atmosphere where individuals can adjust to loss of sight, learn what resources are available for assistance, and develop strategies to regain independence. Through shared experiences and a positive approach, the Sight Loss Support Group helps people to answer the question, "What do I do now?"
