“I find it hard to read and my eyes are getting worse. When I am old enough my dream is to get a Guide Dog”
Emma* is just eight years old and was born with a condition called Anaridia. She received her first white cane when she was six – without it, Emma bumped into things regularly. Emma will soon outgrow her existing white cane, as she is getting taller.
Unfortunately, Emma’s eyes are getting worse and soon she will have no vision. Her dream is to get a Guide Dog when she is old enough – “my Guide Dog will be my best friend, I will name him Flash because we will go so fast!” Although Emma won’t be ready for a Guide Dog until she is a teenager, Guide Dogs Victoria can also provide Emma with the training and equipment she needs to get around safely.
