Message from the President:
Hello and welcome to the St. Louis Chapter of the Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB)! The St. Louis Chapter is one of about 50 nationwide that offers support, information and direction for questions relating to retinal degenerative disease. We hold Chapter meetings 3 or 4 times a year, hosting various retinal doctors, researchers, low vision aid specialists, mobility experts and others. These meetings are free of charge and also offer the opportunity for those affected by retinal disease, their friends, family and anyone else interested to meet others in similar situations and hear the latest Chapter and Foundation news.

It wasn’t until Jacob was five that we realized the limited world Jacob could see, and worse yet, couldn’t see at all.
