‘Since becoming the patron of
Macular Disease Foundation Australia in 2005, I have
become aware how widespread the disease is
and how much ignorance there is about it in the community.’
ITA BUTTROSE AO, OBE
While on Sabbatical in Ireland in 2007, the author was diagnosed with Macular Degeneration. As his eye disease has progressed over the years, he has also come to recognise that by telling his story, he may be able to support others with this condition.
In Will I Go Blind?, he shares his personal and honest experiences of what it is like to be diagnosed with the disability, the kinds of treatments available, the reactions of friends, the need to learn new skills in life and ministry, and especially how it is possible to lead a full life in the community.
The book is for those suffering from Macular Degeneration and for their families, friends and all of us to overcome that ignorance of the condition of which Ita Buttrose is so aware.
He has endeavoured to encourage those who seek answers to the whys and wherefores of what has happened to them. He hopes that this will encourage others to make their lives more liveable and more active, despite what seems impossible. – Paul Cashen MSC
