This is the Makeba Channel Fund. The funds will be used for Makeba's medical costs and related expenses.

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 no 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. Current medical insurance does not cover the cost for this and it is really expensive. Any help towards my cause will be greatly appreciated.
