Helping Save Taylor's Eyesight

In the winter of 2008 at the age of 18, Taylor Giesbrecht was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa. RP is a genetic disease that causes damage to the retina resulting in decreased night vision, tunnel vision and eventually leads to blindness.
RP varies in individuals and there is different types of it but the effects of it are all similar. In the past years, there has been no cure for RP but with all the technology in today's world, the medical field has made some significant advancements toward finding a cure. However, until a cure has been found, there are different types of treatments that have successfully slowed down the progress rate of RP.

With alot of research and talking with Drs., stem cells seem like the best option right now for Taylor. Unfortunately, insurance does not cover any of this type of treatment. And that my friends and family, is why this gofundme account has been created. If you can contribute to Taylor's medical expenses and help him keep his eyesight abit longer, we would be forever grateful.
