The family of Tre Anderson are uniting to raise money to pay for an eye treatment that is crucial in keeping his eye sight.

Tre was born prematurely, weighing 2lbs at birth. The doctor at the time said that he might have eye issues later on.

So, now Tre at the age of 14, has to have a laser treatment in both eyes. Without this treatment he will eventually go blind in both eyes. Unfortunately, the treatment the Optometrist wants to do is not covered by insurance.

Tre was diagnosed with Keratoconus of the left eye.  Thankfully he has 20/15 vision in the right eye.  However, this week that changed.  On Sunday, we noticed a white blob on the left eye.  He was taken to the opthamalogist and we were sent to Dr. Ranjan Malhotra for possible retina transplant.  After seeing Dr. Malholtra, we were informed the keratoconus had worsened and his right eye has the beginning stages of keratoconus.  Because of his age and the fact that both eyes are affected, Dr. Malholtra wants to do a procedure called Collagen Cross Linking. 

The procedure would cost $3,000 per eye. Plus $500 in additional fees. So we have to come up with $6,500 total for him to have this treatment.

Tre has always dreamed of being a police officer. With this treatment it would give him a chance to live his dream and save him from completely becoming blind. I could not bare the thought of him losing his eye sight.

Financially my family struggles and to come up with this amount on our own is close to impossible. If you can give anything my family and I would appreciate it more than words can explain. If you can't, prayers are just as much appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your love and support for Tre!
