Hi Joe. First of all, my name is spelled as Tonya. Second of all, the reason why put it on the list is because I thought that anybody there can help because it say end of the issue that should be addressed because no blind person should have fight for their life whether they are blind or whether they can't walk or whatever. They should have not fight for their lives and for who they are, it should get government hold assistance and they shouldn't have to moved to Canada to just get it, you know. And if you could, I don't know if Larry is listening, but if he is I hope so because I would like him to address as well and maybe he can take this seriously and maybe, I don't know, maybe something can be done, you know. I think it's worth the effort because he doesn't wanna hear I'm sorry anymore, he just want help, you know what I mean? So there he go.
