This is for our niece Peyton, she is almost 14 and she has Usher Syndrome 1B which is a rare incurable
genetic condition (although it is the leading cause of Deaf-blindness.) Peyton was born profoundly deaf and her eyesight is continually deteriorating, as of her last eye exam she has just lost another huge portion of vision. Peyton currently uses a cane for mobility but still has usable central vision in well lit areas.
She has recently been going through some tough times with losing her vision, and we all really want to do something nice for her and take her on a trip to Africa to see all of the wild animals before the inevitable happens and she won't have the chance to see them again.
We have saved enough to buy her plane tickets, but need help gathering enough for the transportation and safaris and also to take one of her parents along with her since she needs someone to help her through it and with the required communication skills.
Any help is deeply appreciated and will go a long way in giving Peyton an aweosme experience and lasting memories.
