Ivyland, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/14/2016 -- Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation is thrilled to announce a new partnership that will bring their resources in front of The Mighty's wide-reaching readership. Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation will now have a growing home page on The Mighty and appear on many stories on the site.
The Mighty is a story-based health community, which is focused on improving the lives of people living with diseases, mental illness and disability. Similar to Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation's intent to find a cure for CRB1 degenerative retinal disease, The Mighty's mission is to spread these stories to promote courage, hope and camaraderie among those living with illnesses. Right now, many Americans in this country are facing serious medical issues or health conditions that negatively affect their everyday lives. They do not want just information; they want to find inspiration. The Mighty publishes stories from real people who may be facing the same challenges.
Those who are facing these challenges are encouraged to submit a story to The Mighty and make their voices heard. By doing so, the stigma that may come from the diagnosis of a degenerative retinal disease can be eliminated and more hope can be spread.
As one of the leading foundations for the blind, Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation is dedicated to helping people living with blindness. With this new partnership, they will be able to help even more people and spread their message even further. Those wishing to contribute to Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation's mission can visit their website to learn more about donations for the blind and resources for families living with blindness.
About The Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation
The Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation was founded by families with CRB1 patients including Kristin and Mike Smedley, parents of two children diagnosed with Leber's congenital amaurosis, a rare eye disease that causes blindness in childhood. Undeterred by this challenge, the Smedley family recruited help from other affected families and founded the Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation. The organization raises funds to support research for a cure, and also provides supportive resources for families living with retinal blindness.
