Girl's Efforts may Help Dog Save Eyesight

By  | 

Imagine trying to sell all your personal belongings, cent by cent, to try to make the money needed to restore your dog's vision. That's the story of one local second grader.

Sandy, a Golden Retriever, was adopted by the Williams' of Dewitt. After about a year and a half it became apparent to the family that Sandy's vision was severely declining.

Samantha "Sammy" Williams, age seven, the daughter of derek and mary anne Williams decided she'd sell lemonade and all of her belongings in a garage sale to acquire the money for the eye surgery.

The story hit the Lansing State Journal and donations and money came pouring in to the Williams'' for the dog's surgery.

However, a surgeon and owner of The Animal Ophthalmology Center in Williamston read the article and was so touched that he's offered to perform the eye surgery for free.
