Important Steps to Battling Degenerative Retinal Diseases ~ VisionWalk

What if you woke tomorrow to discover your eyesight was failing,
permanently, irreversibly...
or your child was diagnosed with a debilitating vision disease?

As a Mom, the thought of not being able to see my children as they grow is saddening beyond measure.  The thought of my children suffering from a retinal degenerative disease is one I do not even care to consider for a moment and my heart goes out to those who will experience devastating vision issues.

Recently I've been having issues with my vision to where is hurt so much to just do my day to day activities. I worried that I might not be able to see if it continued, I have since seen an eye doctor and hope that I am on my way to better vision. The idea of losing my vision also saddened me...a worthy cause for sure.

Having had my father in law lose his vision last year and my daughter have a rare eye disease, I know the importance of saving our vision! Thanks for sharing.
