From MD to Pokemon, Abby Is On The Move

Check Out These Fab Pics of #AbbyOnTheMove

Maryland Grocery Store with magnifierOur Abigail has been a busy lady indeed! The following photos were taken in Maryland, Nevada, California, Ontario and my personal favorite with Pokémon!

Susan Kennedy uses the smartphone app Visor in order to read a can label with magnification and contrast control at the grocery store. She’s wearing an Abigail Style comfy white tank which reads “Blind Chicks with Attitude” paired with a pink cotton sweater, gray shorts, and silver flats.

Images: 1) Use more than eyes at the grocery store, try sniffing a cantaloupe to see if it’s sweet/ripe or not. 2) Susan greets cashier with a smile as she navigates with her white cane and pulls a full grocery cart behind her thru the checkout lane.

 

Abigail was a welcome tag-along on my wedding and honeymoon to Las Vegas, Williams, Az, the Grand Canyon, and Sedona, AZ! ~Bree Orner

I thought this one was cute. The son of one of my friends captured two different images of Pokemon characters who appear to sit on top of the “My Friend is Bold Blind & Beautiful” Abigail Style mug.

  1. So good to see Abby out and about raising the profile for visually impaired people.

  3. This is a wonderful post – really heartwarming and empowering. I wish you the best of luck with this campaign. K x

  4. Great to meet Abigail… 🍀🍒💌 The photographs are pretty and inspiring!… Oh… and that app Pokemon Go seem to be ultimate trend… I will have to give it a try one of these days… even if it might be just a fad, you know…
    Sending love & best wishes. Aquileana 😀

    1. Thank you Aquileana, I’ve heard so much about Pokemon taking the world by storm. Like you I just may have to give it a try just to say I did. Have a good one! 💖

  5. Super cool! Love the tank top, the messaging, the role modeling. All of it!!

    I’m in here somewhere, along with a few other lovely ladies. We are speaking up and spreading the word as best we can. Happy to be a part of this campaign. Thanks goes to the woman who thought of it in the first place. Thanks Steph.

    1. Thank you Kerry! Hugs✨❤✨

  7. Love this and praise goes out to Steph for all the work and thought and care she’s put into this. I was just so proud to be a part of that.

    1. Many thanks to you and all the other supporters Kerry!!🎇🎆✨

  8. You’re doing a sterling job, Steph raising awareness. Love your Instagram feed too. 🙂

    1. Hey Khaya, it’s so good hearing from you and thank you for the compliment. It gets a little hairy trying to manage my mother’s situation and everything else but I’m trying not to stress over it. You take your own photos correct? I thought I asked you once but can’t recall. They are fabulous!

      1. Good to take it easy, Steph. There’s point stressing. And yes, I’m a hobbyist photographer, I take my own photos to document memories. 🙂 Thank you for the compliment!

  9. All of the above comments – and I’m going to try that Visor app and recommend it to a few people!

    1. I haven’t tried Visor but I’m so thankful for the technology that’s made it so much easier for people with sight loss to maintain their independence. Years before I had a smartphone I used a clunky video magnifier; it was cool but the phone’s screen is bigger and there’s much more flexibility than with the video mag.

      1. It’s great to have one gadget that does so many things! My husband gets lost easily and I get carsick, so we turn on the gps to find our way when we’re travelling. The bus time-table’s right there, too, as well as my music and audio-books.

  10. Wow! I just love travelling with Abigail and to all the fund places whe’s been. Just she attended a wedding athe the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas NV.

  11. Alright – very exciting – Abby is on the move – enjoy reading about the adventure. 🙂
