Story

[p]Matilda is 8 years old and has a corneal dystrophy. She was first identified with problems at age 18months old in excruciating pain. Matilda's eyes are covered in tiny microcysts which can dry out and burst causing extreme pain and blurred vision. Matilda's consultants have tried various treatment options in the hope of preventing erosions occuring though none have been successful. She currently manages with lubricating eye drops hourly during the day, thick ointments at night and bandage contact lenses. [/p][p]As parents it is incredibly frustrating not being able to solve your children's problems. Seeing your child in pain and distress and being helpless to prevent this occuring is agony. As Matilda's parents, we feel we need to do something and by raising awareness of eye conditions and Fight for Sight, we feel we are helping Matilda.  This fund will specifically be for research into Corneal Dystrophies, the condition that Matilda has and we hope that with your help, one day a cure may be found.[/p][p]If you fancy fundraising with us, please do get in touch. A 5km fun run, a bike ride, a cake sale, what ever your idea, we would love you to help support us in 'Team Tilda'!! [/p]

Charmaine Perrin recommended your charity after she 'won' a "guess how far I'm going to walk this year" competition. We've known Char since the early 70's through teaching. Delighted to be able to help in a small way.
