Western New York
Dear Friends of the Western New York Chapter:
My name is Sarah Malburg and I am excited to be the 2017 WNY Chapter President! Over the past five years, the WNY area has shown growth in fundraising and spreading awareness of the FFB and my hope is to continue in this direction for the 2017 year!
I want to thank you for your interest in the Foundation Fighting Blindness and its mission to find treatments as well as preventative measures to fight degenerative retinal diseases.
