Supporting the Search for a Cure
"We believe in Glaucoma Research Foundation and their search for a cure."
Margaret Garvin said these words recently. Her husband, Russell, has lived with glaucoma for more than 25 years. Thankfully, his vision is stable. Russell attributes this to the care of his doctor and faithful daily use of eye drops. The recent advances in glaucoma treatment have allowed Russell to preserve his vision and inspired the Garvins to join our search for a cure. Margaret and Russell have donated to Glaucoma Research Foundation over the past two decades because they believe in our innovative, collaborative approach to curing glaucoma.
"I've always been an advocate for teamwork," says Margaret. "More gets done faster when people work together. Collaboration is absolutely critical to success."
The Garvins are especially excited about new discoveries showing how vision loss can be prevented.
Since 1978, we have funded pioneering studies that have significantly advanced the field of glaucoma research. We now know more about the molecular basis of the disease than ever before. This greater understanding of how glaucoma steals vision brings us closer to finding a cure.
Sophisticated research like ours does not happen without the belief and financial backing of friends like Margaret and Russell Garvin...and donors like you. Thanks to your past donations, we've made great strides. But we still have much more to do Our progress toward a cure for glaucoma depends on you.
"We give to Glaucoma Research Foundation every year because we feel this is the real deal," says Margaret. "We believe that this organization is unlocking, at a very speedy rate, what is behind glaucoma. A cure is not far off. Things are happening at such a fast pace now. The more money donors can give, the more people can be involved in this research, and the faster we can make the breakthroughs and find a cure."
