“What I’ve experienced is that I can’t know the future. I can’t know if anything that I do will change what happens tomorrow. I can’t know with certainty, but what I do know is if I do nothing, nothing will change.” -James Orbinski (Former President Of Doctors Without Borders)
Funding research is at the heart of The Vision For Tomorrow Foundation. Research makes it possible to better understand and more effectively treat the conditions that affect individuals with albinism or aniridia. Funding research allows us to envision a world where these conditions may be cured — or even prevented.
The Vision for Tomorrow Foundation understands the importance of not only fundraising, but funding the right researchers and the right research projects which can have a positive impact on the quality of life for individuals dealing with non-denerative retinal disorders (such as albinism and aniridia) and degenerative corneal and glaucoma disorders (such as aniridia). At the Vision For Tomorrow Foundation, we actively seek out researchers and clinicians with a proven track record. We actively monitor the vision issues which affect those with albinism and aniridia so that we can better prioritize our funding initiatives.
