Today you can join Laura in the fight for sight
Laura’s career as a DJ was about to launch when she discovered she was losing her sight due to an inherited genetic eye condition called stargardt macular dystrophy. A routine visit to the opticians when she was 25 years old picked up the signs and led to her diagnosis. She was completely shocked and devastated having previously always had 20/20 vision.
Laura has only 30% of her visual field remaining. Stargardts is currently untreatable and Laura can only slow down the progression of the disease by wearing UV-protective sunglasses.
But she has hope for the future. And it comes from people like you, who can help to fund the vital eye research that can prevent and treat sight loss.
As Laura herself says,
“How would you feel if your sight was on the line? That’s why I’m fighting for more research.”
We’re currently only able to fund one in eight of the research projects we receive. Look Laura in the eye and say that’s anywhere near good enough. That sight isn't worth fighting for.
If you want that to change, please show your support with a monthly gift today. Your regular support really can make a difference.
Research promises so much for the future. But if there’s not enough funding for eye research, we won’t get the breakthroughs.
For Laura and so many others who are or will be affected with sight loss, please help.
Together, we can create a future everyone can see.
