Madison and Malia...Thank You for the Gift of Sight
Madison and Malia are twin girls who were born with glaucoma, a blinding eye condition. Cornea transplants offered them the gift of sight, thanks to the generosity of eye donors. The girls wrote and illustrated the book, "The Blind Porcupine", based on their experiences.
