25 years of MACS
MACS was formed 25 years ago by a group of parents whose children were born without eyes, or with underdeveloped eyes. These conditions are known as Microphthalmia, Anophthalmia and Coloboma. In the UK 100 babies are born each year with these conditions, our daughter Renie was one of them. The MACS chairty provides invaluable support to those who need it. You can find out more about these conditions by visiting their website.
They support families emotionally through tough times, provide a platform for people to share experiences and support each other. They share information and resources. They organsie social and sporting activities to help those with MACS build confidence and independence and they also help fund research into genetic causes of MACS conditions.
To mark their 25th anniversary MACS decided to have their first ever awareness week 1st-7th July. Peacehaven Chiropractic supports the chairty and we wanted to help raise awareness. Not only is it close to our hearts because Renie has micropthalmia and coloboma, awareness week also falls right by her birthday!
We decided to donate £5 from every appointment during this week and also promote awareness through social media, just check out our facebook page.
Overall we managed to raise an amazing £500! Thank you everyone who donated through our facebook page and in clinic. Also to all our amazing patients who came in for their adjustments during the week.
