This is the Makeba Keratoconus Fund. The funds will be used used for Makeba's medical costs.

I was diagnosed with Keratoconus in January 2011. Keratoconus is a genetic disorder that affects the cornea. I also have a several members that have it as well. I am at the point were glasses are longer helping me. I have difficulty driving in the daytime because of the light and reading small print. I am a current graduate student who will complete her degree in December of this year. The vision becoming worse it will make it difficult to continue to work professionally. I have located a Optometry that specializes in ClearKone lenses. My current doctor is not certified in this type of lens. I need funding to see the doctor, receive a fitting, and prescribe the lenses. The additional funds will go towards travel expenses since the nearest doctor is 30 minutes away. Since I am a student and I dont have current medical insurance and the cost for this is really expensive. Any help towards my cause will be greatly appreciated.
