Concert in aid of KC research


What a wonderful evening.  An intimate setting with a glass of wine.  Perfect lighting bringing her sisters paintings to life.
Australian viola player  Michelle Urquhart and her friend Marco van Pagee gave a delightful solo viola and viola duet recital.
Michelle is the NSW representative for Keratoconus Australia and all proceeds from tickets/donations will come to the KC Group to be used for research into KC to benefit those with KC worldwide.
It is worth quoting this from the programme:
“It was whilst studying music at the Sydney Conservatorium that Michelle’s eyesight started to fail.  She underwent her first corneal graft.  It failed, and for four and a half years she was legally blind.  Following serious eye infections and rejection she underwent an emergency graft.
Sight restored, Michelle threw herself back into her music.  ‘Having my sight taken away and then having a second chance at music with my successful transplants has been a miracle and the great gift of my life.  I want to make the most of every moment and share my music with the world, and support others with Keratoconus.’ “

New KC web site

Hello, and welcome to our new-look web site.

Our old site gave us sterling service over the last 10-11 years, but times move on.

The new web site is secure (data is encrypted), responsive (it behaves slightly differently to accommodate different sized screens such as tablets and mobile phones) and it is much easier for us to update it – so it’s quite likely that we will update it and add new content more often than before.

If you have any comments or suggestions the please contact David at chair@keratoconus-group.org.uk
