I want to thank everybody at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and spark therapeutics not only for how they changed my life but for how they changed the lives of so many others & continue to find treatment for the other gene mutations of LCA & other forms of blindness. Thank you guys so much I’m blessed to have vision today.”
