In April 2012, Freddy was brought to New York to see an eye specialist in the hopes of being able to save his sight. The results were beyond our wildest dreams!

Freddy is the son of Wanbli Gleska Tokahe and his wife Maria. He and his family are Lakota, and live on the Rosebud Sioux reservation in South Dakota. Freddy was born prematurely and lost his sight to retinopathy at the age of four months. After Freddy’s family had spent more than eight years searching for an eye specialist to give Freddy a fair eye examination without prejudice to the results and opinions made after Freddy became blind, FREDDY & LITTLE MASSI CALLING CORP was able to find one of the leading eye specialists in New York through the diligent efforts of David Anthony together with his associate Joe Corace. Funds were raised effortlessly in spite of the almost abrupt notice of this appointment , in order to finance the return trip for Freddy and family from the Rosebud reservation. A big part of the fundraising came from a raffle of one of our brother Richard Flittie’s fine hand drums – again, many thanks, Richard! All accommodations etc. were provided courtesy David Anthony. Many thanks to the guys at Goodyear for the great job on servicing Wanbli’s truck!
On Wednesday April 25th 2012 , after Freddy’s detailed eye examination, the doctor gave the happiest possible news to Freddy’s dad Wanbli Gleska Tokahe and mom Maria. Freddy will be able to regain his sight perfectly through a new retinal transplant surgery and has been placed on a priority waiting list for doing this. The doctor also said that since Freddy’s optical nerves etc. were still functional, he made a perfect candidate for such a surgery!
The doctor did this appointment free as a courtesy to David and Joe!
All prayers for Freddy from around the world are deeply appreciated and FOR ALL THOSE WHO WERE ABLE TO ASSIST FINANCIALLY IN MAKING THEIR RETURN JOURNEY POSSIBLE, WE ARE HONORED AND WE ARE FOREVER GRATEFUL FOR YOUR KINDNESS AND CARING AND FOR STANDING WITH US WITH CONFIDENCE TO MAKE THIS A SUCCESS.
YOU ARE TRUE WARRIORS!
Special thanks also to our brother Tony Moonhawk Langhorn for taking the time to accompany Freddy and his family and David during the appointment and all of the other events through which he stands with David.
Thank you once more on behalf of everyone here at Freddy & Little Massi Calling Corp and especially Freddy !
