EagleEyes Winter 2005 Newsletter
The Opportunity Foundation of America Adopts EagleEyes
The Opportunity Foundation of America (OFOA) recently began a partnership with Boston College to bring EagleEyes to individuals with disabilities in the U.S. and beyond. The goal of the Foundation is to manufacture the miniaturized systems and to give them away for free to facilities and families who can make good use of them.
Good News Travels Fast
You never know where you’ll find a new opportunity. For the Cortes family, new hope came in a newsletter. A year ago, The Families of Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) newsletter featured a letter from Patty Bottone, mother of John Bottone, sharing their experience with EagleEyes. As a result of Patty Bottone’s effort, awareness of EagleEyes grew within the SMA community. The Cortes family is one of many families who learned of the EagleEyes program as a result of Patty Bottone’s letter.
An EagleEyes Love Story
EagleEyes doesn’t just bring college students and students with disabilities together. It even facilitates the occasional romantic relationship. The BEAT recently interviewed Peter Brandano about how he first met Laura Mazor in the EagleEyes Program.
