Cameron Family Fund

Kate Cameron and her family set up the fund. This is their story.

The Cameron Family Fund is fundraising for pioneering research into autosomal dominant optic atrophy (ADOA) to help three members of their family – children Edward and Beth and Daniel (father) - and others who have been diagnosed with the condition.

Autosomal dominant optic atrophy (ADOA) is an inherited eye condition causing visual impairment through damage to the optic nerve. This is caused by a change in a gene that means the optic nerve is not able to function properly. Just one copy of the mutated gene leads to the condition and there is a 50% chance of inheriting the disease from a parent who is affected.

Edward and Beth’s Mum, Kate, said: “We want to help in any way we can to fund research into autosomal dominant optic atrophy. With members of my family experiencing low vision, it feels very important to raise funds for, and awareness of, Fight for Sight’s brilliant and necessary work. Thank you for supporting a cause so close to our hearts and helping us to build a future all those with autosomal dominant optic atrophy can see, like Edward and Beth.”
