Delta Gamma - Run For Sight

As many of you know, Ashton and Ayden were born with two genetic visual impairments: Ocular Albinism and Nystagmus. Although these impairments make it difficult at times for them to see; they have persevered through it very well in their first two years of life!

Our young family made the move to St. Louis, Missouri as Jeff got a new job in November of 2009. We were here for less than two weeks and visited the Vision Center at St. Louis Children's Hospital. We were met with more information, amazing resources, great doctors and helping friends than we could have ever asked for. One of the best resources was a contact at the Delta Gamma Center, a center for children with visual impairments.

Although we're new to the various programs available at Delta Gamma, we have already experienced an explosive growth in the development of Ashton and Ayden. We, as parents, have been able to learn more about these visual impairments by interacting with all of the other parents that this amazing center provides for.

These services are ABSOLUTELY FREE of charge to participants like us, and the mission statement clearly defines the scope of their goals:

The Delta Gamma Center for Children with Visual Impairments is committed to helping children who are blind or visually impaired reach their full potential through individualized education and therapy services for infants (birth to three years) and their parents and through support services for children of all ages, their families and the community.

We know that we're less than 1 WEEK away from our event, but we're confident that with your help, we can give our sincere appreciation and gratitude to the Delta Gamma Center for doing all that they have done for our boys in these past few months.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!
