My interview on Radio RPH

I was invited to do an interview on Radio RPH Adelaide on a program called Vision Extra. I was interviewed by the awesome Peter Greco and talked about my experience with Stargardt's Disease and how it lead me to establish See Through My Eyes as a not-for-profit organisation. 

I hope to keep raising awareness of Stargardt's, other vision impairments and how it affects our younger populations. Most of all, I want to keep raising awareness of how amazing and fulfilling our lives can be!

See Through My Eyes is now a Not-For-Profit Organisation!

I am very excited to share that See Through My Eyes is now a registered Australian not-for-profit organisation!

What began as a blog to share my experience with Stargardt’s Disease is now going to not only raise awareness and share information about the disease, but reach the wider community to help make a difference in the lives of people with a vision impairment.

I have brought together a team of knowledgeable Directors to achieve the organisations purposes – we are focusing on education and careers for vision impaired and blind individuals by offering a number of programs including scholarships, adaptive technology, careers counselling and support, workplace seminars and advocacy in our key areas.

My blog will be integrated into our new website - I will continue to raise awareness for Stargardt's Disease and share my personal experiences and research with you all.

You can follow the organisation on social media:

I am looking forward to the future and change that we will make together as a strong community of amazing vision impaired people!
