It Always Seems Impossible Until It’s Done.
— Nelson Mandela

  
My biggest fear is Alicia will die before science catches up.  I believe science is catching up.  

I also pray she will one day also be able to see again.

UCSD received a donation of $50 million to the Shiley Eye Institute from Andrew Viterbi to restore patients vision to even people who are completely blind. 


Here’s a quote from the San Diego Union Tribune in August of 2018:


"Dr Robert Weinreb, head of the Shiley Eye Institute, said it's not too crazy to think that Viterbi's gift could play a significant role in helping find the path forward for successful transplanting the stem cell-derived optic nerve and retina cells that UCSD researchers are already able to grow in the lab.”
