Sherry was diagnosed with Fuch’s Dystropy at age 60. Fuch’s Dystrophy is an eye disease in which the innermost layer of cells in the cornea undergoes degenerative changes. It progressed slowly until she could no longer drive or see the small stitches when quilting -- a favorite pastime.
In 2010, Sherry received her first transplant and the other eye was done in 2012. Today, Sherry is driving again and back to her needlework.
