About the author

Hi, I’m Travis, I was diagnosed with Stargardt’s Disease as a teenager and have been living with the condition for many years now. It was a shock receiving the initial diagnosis and life changed, but I’ve been living a full and active life since receiving the news, that sounds cliché I know, but it’s true. While the disease did, and still does affect life every day, I have found it possible to do nearly everything I want – with a few exceptions – with adjustments and technology; I’ve been to university, worked whilst studying and since university, travelled with friends and on my own, and also enjoy a number of hobbies. Having Stargardt’s sucks, it can be difficult at times, and unfortunately at the moment, there is no cure. On a more positive note, I have found ways to minimise the condition’s effect on daily living, which is the reason for starting this site; I want to share my experiences, information, resources and start conversations in an effort to help others also living with Stargardt’s.
