THE STORY:

(English click see more below)

J'ai appris il y a 15 ans, que mes frères, sœurs et moi-même soufrons d'une maladie des yeux génétique et dégénérative qui se nomme "Rétinite Pigmentaire".   Cette maladie affecte nos champs visuels et mène à la cécité.

Je sais maintenant que mes quatre enfants risquent le même sort lorsqu’ils auront atteint l’âge adulte.

J’ai fait beaucoup de recherches et démarches pour apprendre qu’il n’y a actuellement aucun traitement pour contrer cette maladie.

Le « Massachusetts Eye and Ear Institute » de Boston est un centre de recherche sur les maladies des yeux rattaché à l’université Harvard. Ce centre est celui qui mondialement investi présentement le plus en recherche sur la rétinite pigmentaire.

J’ai donc décidé de faire ma part et de courir le marathon de Boston pour venir en aide à mes enfants et à tous ceux qui souffrent de cette maladie.

Je vous remercie infiniment de me supporter…

Hello Friends and Family!

Thank you so much for coming to my page! As most of you know I am delighted to be a part of Team Mass Eye and Ear for the 2013 Boston Marathon! That's 26.2 miles and I am excited to be running for such a great cause!

All the money collected will go for research in retinitis pigmentosa, an hereditary eye disease that is affecting my family, my children and myself.

So lets raise money to help research and find a cure for eye and ear diseases! Also, lets raise money to help with patient care! 

Make a donation! Every little bit counts! :) Help me reach my goal and surpass it! :)

Feel free to forward this page to your friends and family! :)

Hi Claude. I'm amazed by your story, & I hope that you and your family are doing well. Both of my kids have RP and are patients at MEEI. I too ran Boston last year with Team Eye & Ear, and it was a very wonderful and rewarding experience. I'm praying that MEEI will come to the aid of your family and mine. Best of luck on marathon day.
