GO See Podcast – Episode 003 – Laurie Mileur

Dr. Laurie Mileur was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) in 1992 at the age of 40. When I met Laurie several years ago, I was impressed by her positive and healthy approach to vision loss. We’re proud to have Laurie on the Board of Directors for the GO See Foundation.

GO See Podcast – Episode 002 – Lauren Lajoie

In this episode of our podcast, we visit with Lauren Lajoie who was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) at the end of her studies at Cal Poly University in San Luis Obispo. As long as I’ve known her, she has been fun and fearless. Lauren is an inspiration to me and I hope that you find her story is an inspiration for you as well.
