FFB has made it its mission to drive the research that will provide preventions, treatments and cures for the over 10 million Americans affected by the entire spectrum of retinal degenerative diseases. American’s like Kelly who has been living with Stargardt disease for almost 8 years. Stargardt disease is an inherited disorder of the retina and is caused by the death of photoreceptor cells in the macula. While it is the most common form of inherited macular degeneration, there are no known treatments for Stargardt
“We are excited to name the Foundation Fighting Blindness as an official charity in our 2017 corporate giving program,” said Andrew Reiser, our CEO. “With a close family friend who is affected by retinal disease, I have seen first-hand the amazing work that the FFB has done for her. The entire Strategic Funding team is excited to be sponsoring such a worthy cause.”
