I don't know about you but anytime I hear of a cure coming for any disease or condition I get excited! Thank you, Jesus, for bringing new options and answers to many people.
Did you know that nearly 10 million Americans go blind due to AMD or Age-related macular degeneration? So you can understand my excitement above with hearing there is a cure coming soon! I personally have worked with people who have lost some or all of their sight. I could never imagine not being able to see my families faces again or the beautiful creation outdoors.
Help spread the news, A Cure is in Sight. Listen to these Radio PSA’s below about AMD from a Grandmother’s perspective. This year’s campaign is, ‘Driving Research & SAVING SIGHT!’ Foundation Fighting Blindness is offering a free educational packet on AMD and it can be downloaded from this link.
The Foundation Fighting Blindness, a non-profit organization, has provided funding for research on cures for blindness, specifically AMD, since 1971. In fact, with the research FFB has already made possible, treatments to stop and in some cases even reverse retinal disease is a reality. This is great news for people over 55 and their families. With AMD it is nearly impossible for grandparents to enjoy the little things in life such as playing games, watching movies and reading to their grandchildren. However, due to innovative research, those things are once again possible for many people…but, we need to continue this outreach, support additional research and find cures. This is why our campaign focus is on ‘Driving Research & SAVING SIGHT!’.
