    I honestly don't know what to say other thank you for a glimmer of hope.  I have a beautiful, determined and wonderful 17 year old daughter that has been progressively losing her eyesight to stargardt's since she was 7.  She is now legally blind and what eyesight she has left is measured in a matter of years.  Speaking for my wife as well I know nothing would mean more to us than for our daughter to be able to see again.  Despite this disease she is still fighting for a full life and looking forward to attending college next year in order to become a pharmacist.  Hopefully this research will one day prove effective in giving back these children and our daughter the gift of sight.
