Chaz Davis, a 2012 graduate of Grafton High School and currently a Dean's List student at the University of Hartford lost his eyesight in the spring of his freshman year in college.  The diagnosis was devastating, legal blindness due to Leber's Hereditary Optic Neuropathy or LHON for which there is no treatment or cure, currently.  We are all hoping for a cure in his lifetime.  Because this is such a rare disease, only about 100 cases each year in the United States, there is not enough funding for research though there are promising advances around the corner.  Please think of Charles and donate any little bit you can towards research of Mitochondrial diseases such as LHON. 

His father and I have always been proud of him and his accomplishments but never as proud as we are now.  He is handling this setback with strength and determination.

 

Thank you for thinking of Chaz. 

His grateful mother,

Audrey
