Poppy is a sweet, engaging five-year-old with a fantastic sense of humor! She lives in Marshfield with her dad, mom, little sister Hazel, and her dog Penny.

Throughout all of her treatments and followup exams, Poppy has never lost her happy-go-lucky disposition! With each subsequent office exam, Poppy's vision continues to improve.
