Lions helping with Eye Health!!

DYK...today is World Braille Day, dedicated to Louis Braille, a French educator who invented the Braille System. Louis Braille went blind at a very young age because of a car accident.

Before the Barille system, the blind and visually impaired people used the Hauy System which was a Latin system designed on thick paper or leather. However, Hauy System allowed the people to read but not write. The lack of technicality of the Hauy System led Louis Braille to develop a user-friendly Braille System.

LEBW established the Lions Legacy of Sight Award in 2018 to honor individuals outside of the professional donation and transplantation community who have significantly impacted the public about donation and promoting donor registration on a state or national level.

This year, Cheryl Stedman was selected as the 2021 Lions Legacy of Sight Awards recipient. Sadly, Cheryl passed away last December. The posthumous award was presented to Cheryl’s husband, David.

Cheryl was a kidney recipient, LEBW Transporter and volunteer, Jefferson Lions Club member and first female club president, UW Organ & Tissue Donation volunteer, Restoring Hope Transplant House supporter, and National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin advocate. When Cheryl was diagnosed with lupus in 1989, it did not keep her from doing the things she loved; instead, it took her in another direction of service to her community and activist. Cheryl and her husband, David, promoted kidney disease education and organ, eye, and tissue donation and participated in various fun runs/walks and events to raise awareness. LEBW is forever grateful to Cheryl for her impact on our community and the beautiful legacy she leaves behind. She is greatly missed.
