About Tommy

Tommy is 12 years old and has a rare genetic visual disorder called achromatopsia.  What I do know is that achromatopsia will affect his vision in a number of different ways.  His most critically associated disabilities are poor visual acuity (20/200) and extreme light sensitivity (hemeralopia).  Achromatopsia also means Tommy’s world will be seen only in shades of gray.  His absolute colorblindness is the result of an absence of functioning cones (cells in the eye that provide acuity and color vision).


While Tommy is the true sentinel of his disability and is the only one who truly knows its effects, as his father, I am compelled to help him mature into a strong and competent individual throughout what will surely be a challenging yet unique life’s journey.  Thank you for generosity, time, and commitment by standing with Tommy as we raise awareness and money towards finding a cure.
