Standing up for Vision Loss
"For people out there that have choroideremia, you’re not alone in this. We’re here, we’re trying to push forward and find out new things about CHM every day. We’re trying to build and educate others to let (them) know they’re not alone." - Mason Williams
The Choroideremia Research Foundation Inc. is an international, 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to find a treatment or cure for Choroideremia (CHM), a rare inherited retinal degenerative disease that causes blindness.
CHM affects 1 in 50,000 males and progresses at various rates in individuals, and is characterized early on by peripheral vision loss and childhood nighttime blindness. There is no known treatment, though the FDA has recently begun clinical trials.
Angels for Mark was started by Mark’s parents to aid in the effort to raise money for CHM research. Since their start, Angels for Mark has put on concerts, car shows and more to aid the efforts of the Choroideremia Research Foundation, which sees 94% of all funds raised going to research initiatives.

The "Be You" design stems from Mason's belief in the importance of not trying to be anybody else. Don't cover up your "flaws", don't be ashamed, just enjoy life the best you can by being yourself with no regrets about it. It relates to anybody and anything, whether life is good or tough. While it's simple advice, it is something always worth being reminded.
