As you may or may not know, I have Keratoconus, a rare eye disorder. Over time, I've also developed Strabismus, or "my wonky eye". There's no cure for KC, but there are treatments to stop the progression, & there is surgery to correct Strabismus. I've been ignoring it for some time, but it's gotten to the point where I can no longer ignore it. If I lose my sight I will lose my ability to support myself, my hobbies, interests, everything. I need to start taking this seriously. The price for both treatments run around $5k each (around 10k total). I don't expect to raise near that much, but I was thinking this year for Christmas, instead of buying me a gift, donate the amount you were planning to spend - be it $5-$20 etc. I lost my job due to Covid, as a result money has been tight, but I do have a small amount saved. So even if I only raise a couple hundred, it's enough to start making appointments and get the ball rolling. I know things are hard for everyone right now, so I'm not asking anyone to give extra, just whatever you were already planning to spend on Christmas. And don't worry about getting me something extra just so I have something to open on Christmas! I don't need gifts, I need my eyes. I can also offer help with academics or a in few other areas in exchange for donations. I'm not Liam Nelson but I do have some skills. I appreciate everything you can give and will include my PayPal and venmo below if you prefer. Thank you. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
