Edward ‘E.J.’ Scott suffers from Choroideremia (CHM), a hereditary condition that also affects his brother and grandfather
The disease robs sufferers of their vision, and Scott, 33, is now reduced to walking around with the aid of a stick
Woll, 24, says, “He is so proactive about preparing for this inevitability in the face of something so scary. I can only be awed by his strength and commitment.
The actress is determined to use her fame to help his plight and that of other CHM sufferers – and has enlisted a True Blood fansite to drum up support for a sponsored diet he is undergoing
There is hope on the horizon, researchers claim they are just years away from clinical trials for a potential cure
Woll meanwhile, is using her beau’s strength to inspire her own medical battle with Celiacs disease – a severe intolerance to food types
She said, “I honour E.J. by being equally as strong in my much less life-changing predicament with Celiacs.”
I don’t think Alexander would mind if we instead donated his “Birthday Charity Fund” to Ms. Woll’s fight against CHM!
If anyone disagrees please feel free to contact me…and don’t forget to donate…even a little would help!!!
