Mrs. Amercia raising awareness about RP

The new Mrs. America visits Fox News to speak out about Retinitis Pigmentosa. She works with the Foundation Fighting Blindness and she is using her position as Mrs. America to get the word out about RP as well as LCA and other genetic retinal disorders.

She explains what RP and LCA are and how there have been great advances in gene therapies to restore lost sight in patients. She is hoping that by talking about these issues she’ll encourage others to donate to the cause and support exciting new research.
