Today is February 1st, which marks the start of RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA AWARENESS MONTH, and as I have Retinitis Pigmentosa, I thought would be wonderful to dedicate this month to this degenerative eye disease that affects so many families in the United States, Canada, Latinamerica, Europe, Asia, Africa and beyond…
Here I interviewed an American married woman with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and cataracts, her father also has RP.
Julie Rondan explains in this very moving interview the process she and her husband went thru to decide if they would have children, knowing there was 50/50 chances of this child to have Retinitis Pigmentosa.
Julie has night blindness and she has had RP since she was about six years old.
During the interview we discuss anything and everything related to her life with Retinitis Pigmentosa.
I hope you find this interview very useful.
