In honor of Blindness Awareness Month, I felt compelled to share how blindness and the Foundation Fighting Blindness has affected me personally. Years ago, when I met my father-in-law for the first time, I would have never been able to tell that he is blind. My father-in-law was diagnosed with enhanced s-cone syndrome when he was a college sophomore at the University of Miami in the 1970s. The most determined person I know, he never let his sight dictate his story. As I grew closer with him, I learned that it’s the amazing work and research of the Foundation Fighting Blindness that gives him hope that one day we will cure blindness.
After attending a few events, I understood how special this organization is and knew it was something I want to be a part of. My goal, along with curing blindness, is to ensure the future of the organization for generations to come. Something amazing about FFB is not only the accessibility services they provide, but also the amount of fundraising dollars that get deployed towards research to find a cure. I’m confident that one day we will get there, and I kindly request that you join me in donating to help us reach our goal. Every dollar is a step towards curing blindness, and brings us hope that one day nobody will have to go through life without their sight.
The urgent mission of the Foundation Fighting Blindness is to drive the research that will provide preventions, treatments and cures for people affected by retinitis pigmentosa, macular degeneration, Usher syndrome and the entire spectrum of retinal degenerative diseases. The Foundation is a beacon for those affected by these blinding diseases. Join the fight and help us accelerate our mission.
The Foundation Fighting Blindness meets all 20 Better Business Bureau Charity Standards.
