Hi, I’m Luisa!
For many years, I worked as a phlebotomist drawing blood for a living and also did another type of drawing...art drawings with charcoal! That was until I had trouble seeing things clearly and was diagnosed with Diabetic Macular Edema. It’s really hard to imagine losing my vision, but I'm hopeful now that I'm getting treatment from my retina specialist. I've also learned a lot along the way. I hope my story helps you a little too.
