Sue’s life transformed completely and it all started with a white cane

When Sue first connected with Blind Low Vision NZ twelve years ago, her low vision meant she didn’t have the confidence to exercise. Then she was introduced to her white cane. She was hesitant at first, not wanting to admit that she needed help.

But using her white cane, Sue became more confident, mobile and independent. She joined the Blind Low Vision NZ recreation programme and started getting active again – being given the use of a tandem bike and bi-weekly assistance training for the Outward Bound challenge.

Within six months, Sue was feeling much healthier and happier. She says she owes her good health to your support, and hugely advocates white cane use.

Keeping her active now is her new guide dog Yazz. He helps Sue get out of the house at any time day or night.

“Yazz makes my day every day. He’s just lovely.”

All of this has been made possible with your kindness. Thank you, from Sue and all other Kiwi’s whose lives you have touched.
