HELP VICKY SEE A LITTLE LONGER

Imagine to be told that you will lose your sight in few years. Imagine to know that in few years you will not be able to meet the eyes of your loved ones or see a beautiful sunset over the sea. How would you feel? What would you do?

This is the story of Vicky.

Vicky is 4 year old and she is going blind. A severe congenital disease called Leber Congenital Amaurosis is progressively taking away her sight. She already does not see well but in few years there might be nothing for her to see.

LCA is the primary cause of blindness in children but is very rare,
affecting 2-3 in every 100,000 children. Therefore it is difficult to
attract investments by the large pharma companies.

Imagine you can do something to help Vicky and other kids like her see the world a little longer. Imagine a cure is possible and your help today can make sure it is not coming too late.

DONATE NOW TO SUPPORT THE RESEARCH FOR A CURE

We are funding a 3 year research project for testing therapies to
potentially slow down the progression of the condition.
The project is supported by a partnership between University College London’s Institute of Ophthalmology and Moorfields Eye Hospital and is led by Dr Mariya Moosajee, leading consultant ophthalmologist and researcher.

The project has been recently featured in a BBC documentary as one of the breakthrough research. The total cost is £350,000 which our patient group is entirely funding. We have already raised about half of it in the last 6 months, thanks to events, philanthropic donations and crowdfunding (thank you!!!!).
But we NEED YOUR HELP to keep it running for the full 3 years.
Together we can concretely make a difference to save her sight and that of other kids like Vicky.
