New Year Update

2011 was a GREAT year for the Macular Degeneration Partnership program.  Your support has helped us to accomplish so much in helping those with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

Visits to our website,, went up 120%, with over 16,000 individuals a month staying up to date on treatment and research.  Subscribers to AMD Update, our free email newsletter, have skyrocketed and 30 more people a week sign up to receive these updates.  

But one of the most important things is our very personal, direct and professional support for patients and families.  Your gift has allowed us to continue this unique service.  Our toll-free warm line provides help and hope to hundreds of people a year.   We stay on the phone with callers as long as necessary, until all their questions have been answered.  We do the same for those who contact us by email.  

Callers always tell us, "My mother felt SO much better after talking to you!"  Just today, I received a thank you email:  "Thank you for your response to my question.  It was the best one that I have received."  

We are now holding support group meetings in two locations in Southern California, every month.  Our goal is to expand these in 2012, so more people can meet others with AMD and learn to cope with vision loss.

Thank you for everything you have done to support this important service!
