This Saturday hundreds will be walking to find ‘a cure in sight’ on Butler University’s campus for Foundation Fighting Blindness’ (FFB) VisionWalk.  Know anyone with a retinal degenerative disease?  It is likely that you do as 10 million American’s are affected by diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), Usher Syndrome, and Stargardt’s disease among other vision diseases.  I am walking with Team Dr. Tavel Family Eye Care in honor of my grandfather who has AMD and for Dr. Tavel patients with retinal degenerative diseases.

VisionWalk is a 5K walk to which teams and walker’s raise funds to benefit FFB’s efforts in research, prevention, treatment, and cures for retinal degenerative diseases.  The fundraising goal for the Indianapolis VisionWalk is $70,000 roughly $10,000 more than last year’s earnings and Team Tavel hopes to raise close to $2,000 to help FFB meet their goal.

I am excited to walk with others who are passionate about finding a cure for diseases like AMD and Stargardt’s disease.  Anyone can be affected by vision loss and many of us know of someone with a retinal degenerative disease or other vision ailment.  By walking on Saturday and raising funds for FFB, we are one step closer to truly finding ‘a cure in sight!’
