I went to the first conference with the mind set that I was doing this for my daughter.  I wanted her to meet other children, who were going through the same battles as she was going through. As priceless as that was, I left with so much more than that.  I gained valuable information about how to help my child in the school system, to the medical advances regarding treatment for uveitis.  I received an education in terms that I could understand.  With knowledge comes power, the power to fight uveitis, the strength to advocate for your child, and a peace of mind knowing that you can beat this if you never give up. ~ Renee T. from Oregon, mother of a uveitis patient
