Message from the President:
Welcome to the Cleveland Chapter of FFB and thank you for your interest.
FFB proves that hard work, dedication and an insatiable drive to benefit others can leave an indelible mark of greatness on the world. And, we are on the cusp of something great. We have never been closer to the goals of prevention, restoration of sight, and cure of blindness caused by retinal degenerative diseases than we are today. Each new and ongoing study shows promise in reaching these goals and brings us ever closer to the now-palpable realization that a cure is in sight. When our goal is realized, one can only imagine the wave of emotion and the sense of gratification that will be experienced by the millions affected by these diseases as well as by the countless others that are committed to FFB’s mission.
