The 1st Touch Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding the approximate 3000 patients in the United States with Leber' congenital amaurosis (LCA). Our effort is called Project 3000, and it is the ambitious plan to identify and provide genetic testing for every LCA patient in the nation. We raise awareness at a variety of events throughout the country. The eventual goal is to further scientific understanding of LCA and advance the prospects for treatment and ultimately a cure. We provide genetic testing to every LCA patient regardless of their ability to pay. For those families and patients who lack health insurance, philanthropic donations are used to reduce the cost of testing. We also provide updates on new LCA related findings as the information becomes available.
