Welcome to the September issue of the Fighting Blindness newsletter, We Are Fighting Blindness.
We are delighted to reconnect with you since our last newsletter in June. Over the past months, we’ve been hard at work, and today, we’re thrilled to share the many exciting projects and initiatives that we have been developing since we last updated you.
From an upcoming Age-related Macular Degeneration webinar to the much-anticipated Glendalough Trail Run, we’ve been tirelessly planning and preparing for an action-packed autumn season.
One particularly heartwarming achievement we’re incredibly proud of is our collaboration with The Rotunda Foundation. Together, we’ve championed a vital cause – funding a digital retinal camera at The Rotunda Hospital, dedicated to the eye-screening of premature babies. Early detection is key to positive outcomes and we are so proud of this achievement. We also are delighted to share some positive news regarding the reimbursement of Luxturna in Ireland.
At the heart of our mission is research, and our Research team has been on a mission of their own. Their tireless efforts in launching funding and grants are opening new avenues for groundbreaking work to take place. Furthermore, they’ve continued to diligently enhance the Research section of our website, allowing you to delve deeper into the impactful projects and research work we support. In this issue, we are focusing on the research work of Dr. Joanne O’Dwyer, NUI Galway.
None of this work would be possible without you. As a supporter of our charity, you are the driving force behind every achievement, every life transformed, and every step closer in our vision to cure sight loss. Your unwavering commitment empowers us to continue in our goal of reversing sight loss.
Stay tuned for more exciting updates in this newsletter, and thank you for being a vital part of our journey. Together, we are changing lives and shaping a world where sight loss can be reversed.
Your support is helping us to achieve this.
Thank you, from all at Fighting Blindness.
