YOU NEED TO KNOW
ORDER TO PREVENT NEEDLESS BLINDNESS AND DEATH OF OUR CHILDREN
1. You can take a picture
of a tumor, cataract, and other eye diseases.
ophthalmoscope needs to be used at every exam in a darkened
infant needs an eye dilation exam in order for the ophthalmoscope
to see the retina. Watch an eye dilation exam NOW.
My beloved grandson, Joseph
Hollander Bergsma, died needlessly from metastatic retinoblastoma
on December 22, 2000. Joey was three years old. Awareness
would have saved his life.
I was taking pictures of the
tumor reflecting the light and did not know it.
These pictures would have
saved his vision and his life.
More importantly, if an ophthalmoscope would have been
used in a darkened room to screen his eyes at his 15
month or 18 month well-baby exam…Joey
would be alive. Joey's journey was short, but
his message is powerful. The last year of his life was a
miracle. We were at Sloan Kettering in Manhattan for 8 months
and the Burzynski Clinic in Houston for over 2 months. The
last ten days of his life we were at home in Florida. Joey
died in his house where he wanted to be. Everyday was a
gift and I thought he was to be the first child to survive
this disease. Through his death I realized the miracle was;
Joey is to be the last child to die needlessly from it.
