Dorothea’s 90th birthday gift to vision research

“CERA’s vision is close to my heart. That’s why I chose donations instead of presents for my 90th birthday,” says Dorothea Carmichael from Brighton, Victoria.

Dorothea has generously made regular donations to CERA at Easter and Christmas for more than 10 years. She suffers from age-related macular degeneration, which is one of the CERA’s most important research priorities.

“I decided before my 90th birthday that I’d ask my friends to donate to CERA instead of buying presents,” says Dorothea.

“It’s wonderful to have a gift that will go on and help others long into the future.”

Dorothea’s birthday party, held at St Andrews Anglican Church Brighton on 5 November, raised over $1300 for the CERA Foundation and vision research.

CERA is incredibly grateful for this wonderful support. Gifts to CERA are tax-deductable and go to research projects that can and will change lives for the better.
