We raise funds for support and research to those affected by Stargardt's Disease


Late last year I was diagnosed with stardgarts disease. I went to my opticians for a regular checkup where they saw something that shouldn’t be there. From there on in it was appointments with professionals and specialists to figure out what it was. I was then diagnosed with the disease and since then I have been working through such a difficult thing. For both me and my family this was a very difficult time and a very difficult subject to come to terms with. 

2nd October, my mum ran the London marathon in order to raise awareness for this disease. Since being diagnosed we have realised how little research there is and how little knowledge to the disease. It is such a rare disease and therefore there just isn’t enough out there. 

It would mean so much to me and my family if you could donate to this cause. Thank you so much ❤️💛
