The vision walk is only 4 weeks away! I am so excited! I want to thank everyone for coming to the Vision Walk Fundraising event at Costa Vida, and especially thank Costa Vida for sponsoring it! The benefit day at Costa Vida went wonderfully! They said, they had like 48 flyers turned in! Costa Vida donated 20% of FFB! We earned $218.00 for teams Blue Elephants and Two Little Reasons for the Foundation Fighting Blindness! Thank you everyone! We couldn't have done it without you! I also want to thank my sweet friend Amy, who also has two beautiful children with BBS for putting all of it together. You are amazing!
My hope is to get more people to be aware of these horrible degenerative eye diseases. Retinitis pigmentosa (RP)affects around 100,000 people in the U.S. RP is mainly caused by mutated genes inherited from one or both parents. Mutated genes give the wrong instructions to photoreceptor cells, telling them to make an incorrect protein, or too little or too much protein.
Thank you, thank you again! It means so much to our family for everyone's support!
