So for those of you who know me and my family, you know that our son Parker was born with special eyes…very special. In fact, Aniridia only occurs in about 1 in every 60,000 births. “Aniridia” means the absence of the iris (colored part of the eye). Unfortunately, with Aniridia usually comes other malformations of the eye, some of which are degenerative. Parker gets around surprisingly well and is a very active and intelligent 3 year old. However, it is possible that at some point, he could lose his sight completely. Our goal is to preserve as much of Parker’s sight as we can, so he can continue to thrive and explore the world around us.
This is where the Vision for Tomorrow Foundation comes in – a wonderful organization whose goal is to support families affected by aniridia or albinism, and fund research for better treatment of the conditions associated with aniridia. There is some exciting research being done in hopes of preventing corneal blindness. How amazing would it be to be part of such a wonderful endeavor!
Together we can work towards the ultimate goal of preventing corneal blindness for not only Parker, but all the amazing kids with Aniridia.
What better time than now to get family portraits, updated pictures of your kiddos, or heck, even pictures of the dog! This is a great opportunity to get high quality photos for a really great price AND donate to a worthy cause in the process.
Class of 2013, its time! Summer is the best time to book your senior shoot (before the craziness of senior year sets in). If you want amazing senior photos, email me to book your custom shoot!
