Bill has had trouble with his eyes for a long, long time. He was diagnosed with cataracts but there was a very long waiting list for treatment at the hospital – thankfully the MCF was able to help.
“The doctors said it would be at least six months until I could receive treatment and, to be honest, at the age of 85 I wasn’t sure I would last that long,” said Bill.
“I have been on my own since my wife, Nancy, died, which I find very difficult. My computer is my way of keeping in touch with the outside world but eventually my cataracts meant I was unable to use it. I also use my computer to run a website featuring stories about my 39 years in the British Army.”
