Thank You for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I'm trying to raise as much money and awareness as possible for a charity very close to my heart, Moorfields Eye Charity. As some of you are aware I underwent a cornea transplant last September (2017), more surgery may be required with no guarantees that my eyesight will return to anywhere near normal. One of the most important things we take for granted is our sight, it affects our everyday life. We live in a world of senses; smell, sound and sight. We take them all for granted. I know I did until I started losing the sight in my right eye.
When something like this happens, you start asking questions and relentlessly searching over the internet. This is where Moorfields Eye Hospital & St George's Hospital have been amazing, their staff, nurses, consultants and doctors have been great answering all questions and recommending the right action to take.
Depending on ethnicity, keratoconus affects up to one in 450 people, It is usually diagnosed in young people at puberty, in their late teens or early twenties. The exact cause is unknown. It is believed that genetics and environmental factors play a role.
People become compassionate about things that change their lives, that is me and eyesight.
I would appreciate any sponsors no matter how small. Thank you all for your support!
One side note. If you do walk up to me from my right on the street or at a meeting and I ignore you, I apologise I’m not blanking you – honest! 😊
