One weekend changed my life. In the summer of 2016, I attended a retreat in Utah organized by Becky Andrews for women living with blindness. The time I spent with my peers and the discussions we shared allowed me to realize I wasn’t alone. There would always be a way forward, together.
Becky maintained her efforts to support women facing vision loss. Through her nonprofit, Oasis Center for Hope, she continues to hold retreats and connect people. From the beginning, her father, Max, supported her dream of these retreats. He was a talented artist as well. One day he sketched a flower and gave it to her. As she explains,
“This sunflower is one of his drawings that we made into note cards. I love it because it so represents him— an example of optimism, love, kindness and always seeing the light and goodness. To celebrate his love and support, we are creating a scholarship in his memory through our nonprofit Oasis Center for Hope for women attending our retreats.“
Packs of 10 elegant note cards are available for $10 plus the cost of postage. Contact Becky to order them via email, LookUpMoveForward@gmail.com. You’ll help someone change their life. Thank you and please share this message far and wide.
