My Story…

Dear Family and Friends On October 18, 2020 I am running in the Scotiabank Charity Marathon to raise money for Glaucoma research in Canada. Through Scotiabank, your donation will go directly to the Glaucoma Research Society of Canada. The money raised is used to fund groundbreaking research into the causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of glaucoma – one of the leading cause of blindness in North America. I am a Director and Past President of the Society and can  attest to the critical need for this research to improve treatments and find a cure. Untreated, Glaucoma silently steals away your vision. Your donation helps us fight back, so I am asking for your support. Thank you so much for sponsoring me in this cause.
