  • Eye Surgery

    Posted on September 29th, 2014 cwmoore No comments

    I had eye surgery today on my left eye – which has always been my good eye – and now cannot see anything meaningful out of it. My right eye had cataract surgery back in 2008 and was ok for a while but has gradually become milky again. The solution to that is yet another laser treatment to essentially punch holes in the milky membrane. I have put this off due to the probability of creating more floaters than I already have. Since it is very difficult to write this with my eye hurting and very blurry I will make it short and rest my eyes. It will be a long night and next few days.

    QUOTE “Six weeks ago, her son collapsed after snorting ground-up Adderall and chasing it with enough alcohol to stop his heart.

    Adderall, if you don’t know, is a prescription drug used to combat attention deficit disorder. Yet among college students, it’s prized for so much more, notably its euphoric high, speed-like jolt and, most deviously, its ability to trick the body during alcohol consumption, so that you can binge, and then binge some more.’  ENDQUOTE

    Dear Friends of Jessica Moore,We are excited to tell you about Jessica Moore’s Peace Corps Partnership Program project.  Since its inception in 1964, the Peace Corps Partnership Program has helped thousands of Peace Corps Volunteers implement community-initiated projects worldwide.  Now Jessica Moore is taking on a new Community Wide Solar Energy Project project in Panama that needs your support.This project, developed to address a pressing community need, will be implemented by both Jessica Moore and local partners, and will benefit the people of the community for many years to come. In order to begin implementation, Jessica Moore must raise $‎2,413.50 amount from friends, family and other interested donors.  Jessica Moore and the people of the community are asking for your assistance to turn this project into a reality. The easiest way to donate is to visit www.peacecorps.gov/donate and search by the project number, pp-14-525-025 Although the web site is the quickest way to make a donation, you may also make a check payable to Peace Corps Partnership Program and send it to: Paul D. Coverdell Peace Corps Headquarters Peace Corps Partnership Program, GGM 1111 20th Street NW Washington DC 20526 Be sure to indicate the project number, pp-14-525-025, on the check so it will be applied to the correct project.  Please note that due to security procedures, checks sent to Peace Corps via regular mail can take up to 4 weeks to reach their destination.  We strongly recommend donors to send check payments through an expedited service such as FedEx or UPS as this will dramatically speed up the delivery process. Also, if you’re looking for ways to make your donation go even farther, check with your employer to see if they have a matching gifts program; many companies match donations dollar for dollar. Furthermore, consider forwarding this email to anyone else who may be interested in supporting Jessica Moore.  Remember that gifts supporting this project are tax-deductible! Please feel free to contact our office directly at 202.692.2170 or 1.800.424.8580 x2170 with any questions you might have. Your support will go a long way to aid Jessica Moore’s efforts in Panama.
    Best, The Peace Corps Partnership Program
