Dear Friends and Family,
As many of you know, I have a type of Juvenile Macular Degeneration called Stargardt’s Disease which has caused my legal blindness since the age of 21. I began college with normal vision and graduated four years later legally blind in both eyes and unable to ever drive a car again. My central vision will probably deteriorate slowly over the rest of my life. But my peripheral vision will most likely stay intact. I am thankful every day for the vision I still have which enables me to do many things independently. Although life is challenging for me, many people have less vision than I have. I am also very thankful for each one of you who have helped me in the past with rides, hugs, prayers, support and friendship.
The Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB) is a national eye research organization that is dedicated to finding treatments and cures for Macular Degeneration and other eye diseases. Since 1971, FFB has raised over $240 million to support critical research that may one day lead to the cure of these diseases. The culmination of more than three decades of research has resulted in discovering the building blocks for cures through gene therapy, pharmaceutical therapy, nutrition, drug delivery and retinal cell transplantation.
Because I am committed to raising funds for research, I want to be a part of something affecting positive change for people like me. I will be participating in a family friendly walkathon event. The walk will be held on June 3, 2006 at Lake Lynn Park and Recreation Center in Raleigh. My personal goal is to raise $1,000 for the walk. I invite you to join the walk! I invite you to join my team - Angie’s Angels.
If you can’t join me at the walk, please consider sponsoring me for this event that is close to my heart. You can click the following link www to make a safe and secure donation in support of my team, Angie’s Angels. Or if you prefer, send me a check payable to The Foundation Fighting Blindness.
Thank you for your continued friendship and support of Joel, Hannah (age 9), Trevor (age 6) and me. I know that with friends and family like you we can make a difference in the future of vision research!
Angie Armour Hudson
