AMD (Age Related Macular Degeneration) Is Causing My Grandmother To Go Blind #sightback #ffbamd

  For years my paternal grandmother has suffered from Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). It has been frustrating for her and heartbreaking for the rest of us.  I remember spending countless weekends at my grandma’s  house eating oven-popped popcorn, drinking her secret recipe  orange tang spice tea,  and watching Rainbow Bright videos.

Foodie Friday! Fried Cheese Roll and Flaky Biscuits {Jan 9, 2015}
