We want to thank everyone who helped spread the word and raise matching funds to fight blindness before Christmas. We just got the reports back and since everything was matched TWO times by such generous contributions, together we raised almost $28,000!!!
Of course, we're still working on this and want to continue fighting for Lucy and others with these issues. Remember all proceeds from our book go to these foundations and of course, they'll accept any donations people want to send directly their way.
Lucy's future self is thanking everyone from the bottom of her heart...and I'm sure the future hearts of others who will be blessed because of this are swelling up too.
Lucy has a syndrome called Bardet-Biedl (BBS) which causes blindness, obesity and other health issues. Lucy is one of thousands of children who's families are fighting to find cures for this debilitating syndrome. The goal of the "I Love Lucy Project" is to work with doctors and scientists to stop the effects of BBS before it's too late.
