As you may or may not know, two years ago, I was diagnosed with Keratoconus. Keratoconus is a degenerative disorder where instead of my cornea been the regular curved shape, it is actually the shape of a cone. Over time, my vision gets significantly worse. In one year, I needed to renew my glass prescription 3 times. The disorder has progressed to the point where I can no longer drive at night which is hindering my quality of life. There is no real cure so the only approach the doctors have been taking is finding a way to improve my vision which is a short term solution. My doctors have also recommended Collagen Cross Linking as a solution however that procedure has not been FDA approved in the US. Collagen Cross Linking would actually significantly slow down the process that will keep me from going blind. This procedure is the only comfort I have in living with this disorder. This procedure is actually available in Canada however it will have to be an out of pocket expense. This fundraiser has been set up in hopes to help fund this procedure. For everyone who donates, I’ll automatically keep you posted of my treatment, share my progress and provide a complete report of where the money is distributed and to what purpose. And for those of you, who choose not to donate, please feel free to drop me a line and let me know if you’d like to be included in these updates. I’ll gladly add you to my e-mail list. If you know of anyone who might be interested in participating by adding a donation, please feel free to forward this message on to them, of course, please only send it to people you know personally and think might be genuinely interested in helping me solving my vision problem. Thanks mightily for your kind thoughts and generous hearts.
