Hello! We live in Beijing, China. Our daughter, Xing'er Zhang, was born March 1, 2012. When she was about 12 weeks old we discovered she couldn't see anything. After routine exams of her retina, three eye disease experts from Beijing Tongren Hospital concluded that she was blind. My husband and I hugged and sorrowed with tears for days, but finally we accepted the hard fact.
Xing'er is now 4 years old, shes extremely clever and lovely. She likes to imitate all kinds of sounds, and everyday she brings a smile to our face. Although she can't see, she is blessed. We love her so much, but more importantly she is loved by God.
Three years ago, Ruifang Sui from Peking Union Medical College Hospital recommended ZhiSheng Medical for us, a genetic-testing company. After six months of testing they finally diagnosed our daughter's mutation, Xing'er has the NMNAT1 gene mutation. Everyday we hope that a treatment for NMNAT1 can be found quickly, and with your support we can help fund the research required.
