Eyes for Olivia was created to help with our local fundraising efforts for the
Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation.
At the age of four, our daughter Olivia was diagnosed with a rare retinal disease
called Lebers Congenital Amaurosis due to a mutation in the CRB1 gene. This
disease causes progressive vision loss and there currently is no cure. Although
we are very grateful that Olivia still has a significant amount of her vision, due
to the progressive nature of the disease she will continue to slowly lose the
vision that she has. We have no way of knowing how quickly the progression of
vision loss will occur or how long before Olivia will lose her vision completely.
The Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation is made up of other families like ours
raising money to fund research towards a cure for CRB1 related retinal disease.
As of the end of 2015, together our foundation has raised close to ONE
MILLION DOLLARS for research!
