Louis Corbett

This is Louis Corbett, a sporty, artistic 12 year old boy. He has 3 brothers and 1 sister and a horrible retinal condition called  have  Retinal Pigmentosa ( RP ) disease which is a genetic degenerative retinal disease. Here is a link for more information regarding the disease.


Basically Louis, the youngest member of the family, is going blind. 

Louis & Philco

Not only is Louis a very gifted artist but he is also a very talented basketball player, cricketer & waterpolo player.

Louis's sight has deteriorated rapidly in the last 6 months so time is of the essence. 2 of his 4 siblings are also affected by this disease, the others are carriers. Unlike his brothers who also have RP, Louis is losing his sight fast and very young,

Louis is passionate about sport and his one dream is to watch his favourite basketball team the Boston Celtics, play live. 

We have been able to organise this. Sponsored by Ceiba Solutions they have offered their Corporate Box for Louis and his  Dad on Wednesday 5 March of this year with accommodation in Boston. 

We have  also managed to arrange a tour of the Ocular Research Lab in Massachusetts Hospital in Boston for them both.

Air New Zealand have offered to fully fund Louis's flight and we have 1000 airpoints donated for part of his Dad's airfare.

As a family, & with a small group of friends, we are currently trying to find donations and fundraising for the remainder of Louis's Dads airfare, some spending money,  and IF POSSIBLE  Disneyland passes for Fri 7 March & 2 nights accommodation in Los Angeles.

Along with accepting donations we are selling T shirts for $20 (Plus Postage) - Thanks to Digitech Services for providing the tees!!!

Louis & Mick

This is likely to be the last chance for Louis to see his team play & with your support we can make this happen.

If you could please assist us with purchasing a t shirt - Or if you would like to donate ANYTHING to the nominated account or via the GIVEALITTLE PAGE attached at the bottom of this page, Louis would be even more delighted!!!
