Charity post to help a vet who is losing his vision.

in #veterans3 years ago

This is a charity post to raise money and awareness for Bobby @solarparadise, who is a US veteran, who is losing his vision due to and eye condition called keratoconus.

I will donate all SBD's earned from this post directly to his steemit account to help pay for a vision saving surgery that he needs, but costs around $2 500 USD.

He was an active member of the Veteran's community here on steemit until his vision got so bad he became unable to really use the computer.

As you can see in this image from his blog, his Keratoconus is getting quite severe and he has visible distortion of his cornea. This leads to improper focusing of light entering the eye and severe vision impairment.

His family has set up a gofundme account here, where you can read more about his story and treatment plan.

If you are considering donating yourself, it's likely best to send directly to his steemit account and avoid any charges he would incur from the gofundme.

Please read more about his story and consider donating
