My dear little niece Lucy was diagnosed last year with a rare genetic disorder that will probably make her blind sometime between the age of 9 and 16. Just writing that makes me pretty teary eyed. The fact that those shocking blue eyes will one day no longer be able to see the sun on water, or the first snow fall or the bright fall leaves….oh, it makes your heart ache.
My mom and sister have launched a full blown project to support research that might help Lucy and other children with blindness (or threatening blindness). Please click here to read more about the I LOVE LUCY PROJECT and to learn about small ways you can help.
It might just help you with some holiday shopping too….and who doesn’t need that right now?
