Help spread the news, A Cure is in Sight. Listen to these Radio PSA’s below about AMD from a Grandmother’s perspective. This year’s campaign motto is, ‘While keeping your body fit, Make sure that your eyes stay healthy too!’ Foundation Fighting Blindness is offering a free educational packet on AMD and it can be downloaded from this link. We need your help! As a journalist and blogger, spread the news about the efforts that are being made to fight AMD and in some cases, reverse the disease. Please use #ffbamd when blogging about amd. Thanks!
Every year nearly 10 million Americans go blind due to AMD or Age-related Macular Degeneration. The exciting news is that a cure is in sight! The Foundation Fighting Blindness, a non-profit organization, has provided funding for research on cures for blindness, specifically AMD, since 1971. In fact, with the research FFB has already made possible, treatments to stop and in some cases even reverse retinal disease is a reality. This is great news for people over 55 and their families. With AMD it is nearly impossible for grandparents to enjoy the little things in life such as playing games, watching movies and reading to their grandchildren. However, due to innovative research, those things are once again possible for many people…but, we need to continue this outreach, support additional research and find cures.
With your help and your reach into the digital world we can continue with our important work of helping the blind to see. For this year’s campaign we have radio spots, scripts, a video and an ad that you can use to get the message out to your listeners or readers about AMD, as well as providing them with instructions on how to receive a FREE information packet on the topic. We hope you will help us to reach out about this extremely important cause. My own family member has AMD and has inspired me, and our company, to reach out to you for help on getting the word out. By helping us, you are saving the sight of potentially millions of afflicted people every year!
To make it a little easier, we have put together this landing page that can give you more information about the campaign with links to the media. Engaging in this incredible outreach to help people and their families is so important. We hope that you will have the same urgency as we do about making this campaign a success.
Thank you very much! Please get in contact with us if you have any questions or need any more information.
