Help Max see

The Northern Star - - NEWS -

JEANNIE and Rod Mo­ran want to do all they can to help their grand­son Max re­gain his sight.

Seven-year-old Max, who lives in the Bris­bane area, was born with the ge­netic con­di­tion oc­u­lar al­binism, which af­fects the eyes, and was di­ag­nosed legally blind when he was four months old. He does have some vi­sion but it is se­verely im­paired.

A new tech­nol­ogy is now avail­able in Aus­tralia called eSight, which is set to im­prove Max’s sight.

The Mo­rans have or­gan­ised a fundraiser in Bal­lina to help cover the $13,000 needed to get Max to Ade­laide so he can be fit­ted with eSight glasses.

The Fam­ily Fun Day will be held at the Shaws Bay Ho­tel on Sun­day from noon.

There will be a free jump­ing cas­tle and face-paint­ing for chil­dren, as well as raf­fles held through­out the af­ter­noon.

Some of the prizes in­clude a fam­ily pass to Dream­world, a night at the Ra­mada Ho­tel and Suites in Bal­lina and a car ser­vice with Cen­tral Bal­lina Ser­vice Cen­tre, plus more.
