Now that he’s back on his feet, speaking out around the world, Don reports “I’m hearing more and more frequently that my story has inspired others, and I want to spread this further! Your stories too are essential to helping others. Reading about the challenges – and the successes – of living with macular disease helps us feel we’re not alone. I want to create a global community of people helping people and we need you!” Click here for Don’s story.

AMD Alliance International has set up what we call a “patient portal”, a place where you can read stories about people living with macular disease, and upload your own story or pictures. Share your story to inspire others!

Our international patient ambassador MacDonald (Don) Curran says “I learned about putting a red stripe on my golf club from one of my peer supporters. We hope that tips and tricks like this, for coping with low vision, will help everybody. Share your story now, and help make a difference.”
