We’re thrilled to announce a new partnership that will bring our resources in front of The Mighty‘s wide-reaching readership. We will now have a growing home page on The Mighty and appear on many stories on the site. We are so excited to bring you this news, as The Mighty has touched so many people, bringing readers together from all over the country.
What is The Mighty?
The Mighty is a story-based health community that is focused on improving the lives of people who are facing disease, disorder, mental illness and disability, just as we are intent on finding a cure and resources for CRB1 degenerative retinal disease. More than half of Americans are facing serious health conditions or medical issues like blindness or visual impairment, and they want more than just information; they want to be inspired. The Mighty publishes real stories about real people facing real challenges.
Their stories are shared by those who may be facing the same circumstances as someone else or other families. By spreading their stories, others may garner courage, hope or camaraderie, allowing them to open up or become “mighty” in their fight against these ailments. “You’re not alone” and “you matter” are two maxims through which those living with disease can find strength that they express and share in stories.
We encourage you to submit a story to The Mighty and make your voice heard. By doing so, you can eliminate the stigma that may come with being diagnosed with a degenerative retinal disease. We want to hear from you to spread the hope.
What is Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation?
Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation is the only patient organization for CRB1 disease, our mission being to fund CRB1 research and find a cure as soon as possible. As one of many foundations for the blind, we strive to help the children with deteriorating vision before it is too late. We are working to stop the progression of the disease and ultimately restore all CRB1 vision with donations for the blind.
Because we’re dedicated to helping children and families living with blindness, our partnership with The Mighty will be able to help even more people. Learn more about our mission at http://www.crb1.org.
