Welcome

KRISTIN’s MISSION: GUIDE INDIVIDUALS & ORGANIZATIONS TO TRANSFORM THEIR JOURNEY OUT OF DARKNESS… AND INTO GREATNESS. 

“From time to time we encounter a struggle, a setback, that doesn’t exactly fall in line with our plans.  I never panned on raising blind children.  I never planned to launch a research organization.  But I did face the challenges in front of me and I learned how to not just survive, to thrive!  It’s my turn now to help others learn what I have learned.”  Kristin Smedley

 

A journey worth sharing...






Kristin's journey began on the floor of a doctor's office in Philadelphia when she received the devastating news that her newborn son was blind.



After years of anger, grief and struggle, Kristin's perception of blindness completely changed, thanks to her beautiful son's incredible vision of life.



Kristin embarked on a journey to raise her blind children well (yep, she has more than one blind child!) where she gathered all the tools and team members she and her boys would need to move from surviving to thriving.



Kristin now shares her message of perception transformation with audiences big and small.




COMING SOON: Kristin's wildly popular TEDx Talk replay: How I Learned To See Through The Eyes of My Sons.


Kristin's Impact...

  • “Kristin is an inspiration to everyone who meets her.”

    Kristin appeared on my local TV show Main Line Connect in 2016. She is extremely dedicated to spreading the word about her non-profit, Curing Retinal Blindness Foundation. Her passion shines through and it is truly amazing what she has accomplished and continues to accomplish with her events, speaking and her blog. What was borne out of personal necessity trying to help her own children has grown into helping so many. Kristin is an inspiration to everyone who meets her. - Jennifer Lynn Robinson, Esquire

  • “Her willingness to partner and find collaborative opportunities at every turn makes her a trusted advocate”

    "Kristin is a force of nature- her clarity of mission and purpose serves as a motivator for all of us.  Her willingness to partner and find collaborative opportunities at every turn makes her a trusted advocate in the retinal disease community and she has taught me so much about the unmet needs of this patient community." - Jamie Ring, Head of Patient Advocacy, Spark Therapeutics

  • “…a recognized leader and often sought after for her insights and guidance.”

    "Kristin is a passionate advocate for rare eye diseases. She is a recognized leader and often sought after for her insights and guidance. She has moved mountains for her community and continues to inspire many others that are working to achieve similar success.  She is quite a remarkable mom on a mission." - Nicole Boice, Founder & CEO, Global Genes - Allies in Rare DIsease
