My Message

Dear Friends

Now that I am healthy, I have renewed my commitment to Cycle for Sight and and joined a new combined Team, Eve's DOVS. Eve is my good friend. She is also a mother and a great person. She cannot practice anymore because she is legally blind due to retinal degeneration, like her sister. Because of research funded by FBC the genetic cause of her retinal generation was identified. I would do anything to help her. Now that we now know more about the genetics novel treatment tailored to the genetic defect is now reality for some. May be we could do that for Eve. We want to make a difference in saving vision but cannot do it without your support.  I have too many friends that have now moved on to having seeing-eye dogs. 

Cycle for Sight is an important fundraiser for Vision Research in CANADA which is the mandate of the Fighting Blindness Canada. Vision impairment is more prevalent that you think and carries a huge cost at many levels. Did you know than at least a million Canadians have reduced vision due to macular degeneration alone. This condition has a prevalence of 1 in 27! This risk steadily increases with age (2% of over 50's and 30% of over-75's). There is no cure at this time as the cause is poorly understood.

Retinal dystrophies, what Eve is the leading cause of vision loss in childhood. Thanks for sponsoring me generously and contributing to making a difference.
