Specs for Little Heroes – Eyeglasses for Retinoblastoma Children

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

Specs for Little HeroesWe are so happy to have found Specs for Little Heroes last year. We were so impressed with this organization that our office voted to support them this year. Many children have been blessed by the work of this organization – ensuring that children affected by retinoblastoma can receive and wear appropriate and well-fitting glasses to protect their eye(s).

Specs for Little Heroes was founded by Erin & Adam LaFleche after their son Justin was affected by retinoblastoma. They discovered the high cost of protective eyewear for kids and that insurance often will not cover this necessity.

“Eye Power Kids wear creates t-shirts to make patching and glasses fun for kids and adults! We want all kids to be proud to wear glasses and patches because they are all little super heroes. We created Eye Power Kids Wear because of our son Scott who was born with a congenital Cataract. He wears a contact, glasses and patches each day and we want him to grow up a happy little super hero proud of who he is.”

“There are so many kids out there that they hate to patch, and it’s a struggle everyday, and now they want to put on their patch in the morning because their patch gives them ‘superpowers.’”
