Give

Your support today provides critical funds that will be used in accelerating the research that will end blindness caused by Choroideremia.

Fundraising

Fundraising programs are what allow us to invest in cutting edge research designed to find a treatment or cure for blindness caused by CHM. Hosting a fundraiser can be as easy as setting up a “Birthday Fundraising Appeal” or putting on a small event with friends & family. Keep it simple, or get creative – it’s up to you!
