The Fight On Campaign For Séanín
The Fight On Campaign has been set up to raise awareness of Séanín Smith, a young 23 year old girl who is battling Macular Degeneration 2 years ago, a disease usually affecting people over 60. As a result of this, she has lost the central vision in her right eye.
I have met Séanín on several occasion and have been won over by her determination and fight to raise money to get treatment. I ask visitors to My Way Access to help Séanín too.
