Stuff About Me:

Two years ago, I went to visit the Schepens Eye Research Institute in Massachusetts.  I was impressed by the dedication of all the people I met. The research that particularly peeked my interest was conducted by Dr. Dong Feng Chen. She now has discovered a novel protein that has been shown to regenerate the optic nerve in adult animals.  

I decided to raise money for Dr. Chen's work because I have glaucoma.  I am 47 years old and I am blind in my left eye and lost 70% of vision in my right eye; I do not have any peripheral vision. I thought of many ways to voice my excitement about this tremendous miracle.  I found it! I will run, as far as I can, and YOU, you will help me keep the windows of my soul open!
