The kids in our foundation are blind due to mutations in the CRB1 gene causing a rare genetic disease, a degenerative retinal disease (Leber's Congenital Amaurosis, Retinitis Pigmentosa, or cone-rod dystrophy) Some of the kids have already lost almost 100% of their sight. Many of the kids still have some useable vision, but it will deteriorate if nothing is done to stop the degeneration. We are working to stop that degeneration and ultimately restore all CRB1 vision!

who had vision restored with gene therapy!
A CURE IS IN SIGHT!
Our mission is to fund CRB1 research and
move to a cure as soon as possible.
The CURING RETINAL BLINDNESS FOUNDATION is a 100% volunteer organization.
