Most of us take for granted the things we use every day. For instance, some people do not have our senses, such as sight, hearing, walking, and speech.
Living without the ability to see is perhaps the worst of all of these things. a green field or a blue sky’s basic beauty. We cannot imagine our lives without these treasures.
This is why we found this story to be especially intriguing. Nicolly Pereira, who is only 2 years old, has never been able to see or hear her mother. In Brazil, she underwent a number of surgeries, but none were successful.
When Nicolly’s mother, Diana Pereira, shared her experience on Facebook, a movement to help her see was started. And the outcomes were, well, incredible!
According to the Miami Herald, Nicolly received a Childhood Glaucoma diagnosis not long after birth. She would have to spend the rest of her life in the dark, according to the doctors, who believed she was incapable of even seeing light.
However, one Miami Herald reader got in touch with the Jackson Health Foundation, a group affiliated with Kevin Garcia’s organization, after reading Diana’s story on Facebook. The combined proceeds from the two organizations were able to cover Nicolly’s surgery’s $17,000 cost.
The day arrived to determine whether the procedure was successful after she underwent surgery to lower the pressure in her eyes from 50 to 12 (the normal level for children is between 10 and 20).
Little Nicolly can be seen sobbing hysterically in an emotional video that was captured just as the bandages were taken off. She calms down though once the doctors take the bandages off of her eyes. For the first time in her life, she is miraculously able to see now!
Naturally, she was perplexed at first, but as soon as she saw Diana, her mother, everything began to make sense.
Watch the moving scenes that Nicolly witnesses for the first time in her life in the video below:
