RSBC launches 2021 Christmas Appeal

A little girl sat in front of a Christmas tree

When two-year-old Maya was diagnosed as blind at just nine-weeks old, her mum Sharn was devastated.

“A year ago, I couldn’t imagine tomorrow,” Sharn told us. “But now I can’t wait to watch Maya grow. I can’t wait to watch her show this world exactly what she’s made of. I can’t wait to watch her reach for her dreams and grab them!”

The difference is down to the support of RSBC’s Families First team, and the emotional and practical support Sharn received from one of our Family Practitioners.

Now Sharn’s hope is for other families to be able to receive the support that she and Maya did.

You can read Sharn and Maya’s full story on our Christmas Appeal page.
