Why I don’t Give up

In today’s episode Pastor Cliff tells the story of growing up with Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) a group of rare, genetic disorders that involve a breakdown and loss of cells in the retina — which is the light-sensitive tissue that lines the back of the eye. Common symptoms include difficulty seeing at night and a loss of side (peripheral) vision. RP is considered a rare disorder. Although current statistics are not available, it is generally estimated that the disorder affects roughly 1 in 4,000 people, both in the United States and worldwide.
