Today is Giving Tuesday – a global day of generosity. Please consider a donation to help Vision for Tomorrow in the work we do funding research and supporting families affected by aniridia.
Your dollars make an impact:
Two years ago, VFT sponsored an Aniridia conference for researchers, clinicians and patient groups. That conference spawned a flurry of activity in the Aniridia community, including: 1) VFT being a key driver in establishing Aniridia North America; 2) VFT-funded researcher Dr. Ali Djillian collaborating with others at the conference to further his research on cornea health; 3) more research studies led by leaders in eye genetics and biology. Fast forward to 2021, donor support enabled us to sponsor another conference with leading researchers from the United States and Europe, promoting further collaboration.
Many living with aniridia must undergo multiple surgeries to treat glaucoma and cornea deficiencies. We know this first-hand, our Board members’ families live with aniridia each day; and our first adult Board member with aniridia just underwent another surgery three weeks ago. Only through research can less invasive, more successful surgical and non-surgical treatments be developed for adults and children.
Your gift on #GivingTuesday will help VFT continue to deliver on its commitment to fund research and to spur collaboration between researchers, doctors, and clinicians.
