Family of Twins Born with Rare Condition Struggling to Make Ends Meet

STOCKTON-

Jameson was born with one eye and his brother Jackson, who also has a club foot, can’t see at all – a challenge one Stockton family was not expecting.

Parents Summer Hollingsworth and Michael Lopez want to give their kids the best medical care possible, with weekly trips to the Bay Area to see specialists, but it’s beginning to take its financial toll.

“They see an endocrinologists, three different optomolgy specialists. We travel back and forth,” Hollingsworth said.

Those back and forth trips mean gas and toll money, and both parents are currently unemployed, so they’ve set up a GoFundMe page to help offset medical costs.

The condition is known as Anophthalmia, which doctors say occurs in three out of every 100,000 births.

Hollingsworth and Lopez hope to raise $20,000.
