Both daughters have gotten themselves fully engaged right now in the fight against blindness. Both are participating in the Foundation Fighting Blindness' VisionWalks, one in Greensboro on October 1 and one in Boston on October 29. They have set up their teams and are looking for team members and supporters, those who'd like to walk (and get their own sponsors) and those who can't be there to walk with them but who would like to make a donation on their behalf.
Andrea's page is here! Roberta's is here! You might recognize these photos from their personal pages.
If you are so inclined and would like to donate to a cause that funds research for all degenerative vision disorders, you will find links on their respective pages. At this time, there is no treatment or cure for Usher Syndrome, and research funding is needed. Your support, in prayers, thoughts, and deeds, will all be appreciated by our family and so many others who suffer from Usher Syndrome and other deaf/blind issues.
Thank you so much!
