in memory of Dr Evan Soicher
As we reported in our January news, an incredible amount of money was donated to the Eye Centre in memory of Dr. Evan Soicher. In fact, twice as much as we were expecting. So far 500 people have been screened and 50 life changing cataract surgeries have been done. We will continue to reach people as Dr. Evan's legacy.
