San Antonio / Austin, TX
Message from the President:
To the Members of the San Antonio/Austin Chapter:
In May 2011 we were asked to take the role of president for our chapter, and we were excited to accept the challenge and take over leadership of the chapter as co-presidents.
We decided to get involved with the chapter shortly after learning that Jameson Dunn (Todd's 12 year old son) was diagnosed with Stargardt's Disease in 2009. Jameson had been having visual problems for a few years despite the help of several eye doctors.

VisionWalk was new territory for Steve and Carolyn Browne of San Antonio, because it was the first time they had gone public about their daughters Sarah and Ellen having combined hearing and vision loss from Usher syndrome. Though they had been ardent supporters of the Foundation since 2001 — Steve recently became a national trustee — most people in their circles only knew that the girls had hearing impairments.
