Increase awareness and funding for Leber's Congenital Amaurosis (LCA)

Leber's Congenital Amaurosis is the leading cause of childhood blindness. There are approximately 3,000 cases in the United States. These individuals either live in complete darkness, or their world grows darker by the day, leading to complete darkness. We would like to continue the momentum of great research reminding us that there can be a cure for all cases of Leber's Congenital Amaurosis. Everyone should be able to navigate their life with vision.

Inspired by Rare Disease Day (February 29), we would like to get 3,000 signatures.  One for each person affected in the United States.

Thank you for supporting research and funding for Leber's Congenital Amaurosis.
