PIX11 helps Jersey City widow get new glasses when insurance won’t pay

JERSEY CITY, N.J. — Jersey City resident Maryann Bracero desperately needs new glasses but says on a fixed income, she cannot afford them.

Bracero, 65, has been struggling for over a year after her insurance refused to cover the expense.

The widow then reached out to PIX11 News.

"Sometimes you don't have the money and just have to ask for help. No agency would help me," said Bracero.

PIX11 News called the doctors and Newport Vision Center in Jersey City and they offered to help get Bracero a new pair of glasses.

"Thank you PIX11. See you soon," said Bracero smiling.

Newport Vision Center in Jersey City will be providing Bracero with the glasses she needs.
