Katie Hopkins, Chapter President


Welcome to the South Carolina Chapter of the Foundation Fighting Blindness! 

Our goal is to plan meetings for our members that are beneficial to all in terms of education, research updates, and support for those who are living with retinal diseases as well as for parents with children who have retinal diseases.

We look forward to the growth of our Chapter so that we may raise awareness about blinding retinal diseases and the Foundation Fighting Blindness’ Mission to drive research that will provide treatments, preventions, and cures for the entire spectrum of retinal degenerative diseases.  We share the vision of David Brint, Chairman of Foundation Fighting Blindness:  We will end Blindness!

We work to support research funded by the Foundation Fighting Blindness through grass root fundraising and awareness-raising events.  We want to make sure that as many people as possible in our community know about our Chapter and the Foundation Fighting Blindness.  We want to help others realize that there is hope for a future with sight.

We hope you join us in our fight to end blindness.  We’d love to hear from you, and we welcome your participation in the South Carolina Chapter!

There are other leadership opportunities available and we would be honored to work with you on building awareness in South Carolina.
