Paw Paw man walks in hopes of a cure

       Herb Grassow, of Paw Paw, and his dog, Baxter, will be walking in Paw Paw on June 6 to raise money for the Foundation Fighting Blindness, which researches cures for retinal eye diseases.

    On June 6, Herb Grassow, of Paw Paw, will be walking in Paw Paw to raise money for The Foundation Fighting Blindness, a company dedicated to supporting research for curing eye diseases. This fundraiser provides funds for this research.
    “The reason I walk is because I have a retinal deteriation eye disease known as Rentanitis Pigmatosa,” said Grassow. “I am also walking for my sister because she had the same disease, and went completely blind before she passed away.”  Besides retinitis pigmentosa, the Foundation seeks cures for many retinal eye diseases, such as age related macular degeneration, and others.
    Grassow, who will be joined by his leader dog, Baxter, will walk a route in the village of Paw Paw, and is seeking donations. He invites others to join him in his walk, keeping social distancing in mind; or on his virtual walk on a treadmill or around your own back yard.
    “If you just want to support me on my walk, that would be fantastic,” said Grassow. “There is no set amount, just as much as you want. All money is very much appreciated by me and the Foundation Fighting Blindness.”

    “I walk in hopes that the Foundation Fighting Blindness can find a cure for all eye diseases, so others do not have to suffer with the darkness of an eye disease.”
