Visually impaired diabetic needs transportation help

  • Posted: Sunday, December 16, 2012 12:05 a.m.

Pamela, who lives in Mount Pleasant, is legally blind and has very little income. She is also a diabetic and must go to the doctor every three months to monitor her condition. In order to get to her doctor appointments or go grocery shopping, she must take a cab or depend on the Independent Transportation Network, both of which place a huge strain on her meager finances.
