“With a broken heart and no where else to turn, I found the National Keratoconus Foundation…”
When 11-year old?Michael Caddigan?was?diagnosed in January 2008, his?keratoconus was a minimal disability in his right eye. By April 2009, the Long Island, NY, native?s vision had deteriorated, and he developed KC in his left eye, as well. And on top of that, he was contact-lens intolerant. His doctor told the Caddigan family that Michael?s only hope was a corneal transplant and that he could no longer help them.
“With a broken heart and no where else to turn, I found the National Keratoconus Foundation,” Michael?s mother, Maryalice Caddigan, says. “I can?t say enough about the heartfelt concern and kindness I was given on each and every phone call.”
