Description

http://www.fightforsight.org.uk TV presenter Judy Finnigan makes an appeal on behalf of Fight for Sight, a charity that raises funds to support vital medical research into a wide range of eye conditions. It's a subject close to Judy's heart as she supported her mother when she became blind, and she recently faced two emergency operations to prevent her own sight failing. The film features Emma and her son Tommy, who has Choroideremia, an inherited eye condition that will leave him blind in a few years' time. Desperate for a cure, Emma turned to Fight for Sight, who inspired her to raise money to fund a research programme. Now, thanks to that effort, doctors believe they are on the brink of being able to prevent this terrible disease. At last there is the potential to save thousands from going blind, and Fight for Sight needs more support to help them continue their research. To donate, please go to the website fightforsight.org.uk or call 020 7264 3900. Or if you'd like to post a donation please make your cheque payable to Fight For Sight and send it to: Fight for Sight, Freepost RSSA-UHBJ-USYZ, 9-13 Fenchurch Buildings, Fenchurch Street, London, EC3M 5HR
