Review for Discovery Eye Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In a world where we are constantly exposed to large foundations with a lot of support and active members in the community focused toward the foundation the nkcf continues to shine through. This non profit exists to educate and move forward with innovative ways to prevent, cure and help those with the condition. When I was diagnosed with the condition this website was my first educational exposure. Although it is such a rare disease the foundation thrives to change the rare case and often the overlooked patient. For its size the foundation has gathered a large population of followers, but would be a perfect candidate for an award - it has been life changing for me. This is true especially because since it is so rare I beleieved that there was no one out there who could understand the struggle with the condition. Nkcf helped to connect me with others and has been so inspiring to me personally that I have set up a sponsorship with the foundation to raise awareness in my community and accept donations as a sponsorted triathlete of nkcf. I have pledged to donate $1500 and when I participate in ironman rhode island (a 70 mile triathlon) I will know that I'm not running for myself, I'm running for everyone with the experience of a keratoconus diagnosis... and that's all because of this foundation! Thank you nkcf!
