Save Edie’s Sight

My beautiful friend Edie has received some awful news about her vision. Due to the Corona Virus pandemic her previous appointments last year were cancelled and held off. Her recent appointment she has now discovered her vision is deteriorating so badly because she has a disease called Keratoconus. This disease thins her cornea, the treatment available is called Cross-Linking which will use special light to strengthen the cells. With this awful diagnosis she has also learnt that this specific disease is totally incurable, the treatment itself will not improve her vision it will just stabilize her vision as it is now.. it is time sensitive, the quicker Edie gets the treatment the better. Because of appointments being held off, and along with a humongous NHS waiting list, Edie is now forced to search for private treatment. To make matters worse because of the National Pandemic the country is currently facing, Edie has been forced to stop working as she works in close contact services so even more so money is in short supply right now. Edie has a little boy called Maison who is only 3 years old, and as any mother at the age of just 27 being told this awful news, she is scared senseless right now. Any donation would help tremendously to lift the worry, stress, anxiety off Edie’s shoulders. Thank you!
