Macular degeneration robbed Anne-Marie Brune of her sight. But because of a gift that she and her husband Heinz made to Waterloo, other people with the same condition may recover their vision.

The Brunes believed in the power of science to transform lives touched by disease, and they dedicated their entire estate to research that will “advance the human condition.” Their gift to Waterloo’s School of Optometry & Vision Science will further that goal by supporting research in eye and brain diseases that afflict thousands of people around the world.
