New Hope for Gene Therapy...A Young Boy's Fight Against Blindness

I often talk about gene replacement therapy. This is another inspirational video. Yes, they are working on one specific gene of LCA, but who knows when that can research can completely open the doors to all genes that cause LCA. This is what we as a family, work so hard for. This is why we do our events, why we have our website, why we raise money and awareness, why we research and try to connect with others. It's completely mind-blowing with what science has come to, to be able to be so close to cure blindness. It's been done in clinical trials!

I'm confident this will help so many individuals out there. It really hit home when Dr Jean Bennett mentions she still cries when she sees Corey today. Dr. Bennett and I have exchanged emails, and I feel her passion come through her emails. I am proud to be in contact with people I have met along this crazy and wild journey!

We will continue to march on...
