Wouldn’t it be nice if Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) would go away? Hence the title of this post RiP :-)

I know many of us who have this blinding eye disease wish there were no such thing. I’m one of those people.

Nothing bad happened today but wouldn’t it be nice if we could wake up each day and not have to think about RP, or any vision disorder?

Since this is not going to happen, at least not today, I am in favor of raising awareness about this condition. There are many ways to do this but here are just a few ways:

  • Have a Facebook Page
  • Create a Blog
  • Write a Book
  • Be active…join local walks raising money for research funds
  • Or simply talk about it with anyone and everyone

Eventually word will be spread, funds will be raised, and a cure will be found. In the meantime, feel free to read this book by a fellow RPer.

    I try to educate anyone and everyone who will listen! I just spoke yesterday with a group of audiology students and about the need for early genetic testing. The more people we can find out who have this, the more awareness, more funding, more research, etc. Thanks for your entries! I love reading them.
