Deborah Ann Woll who plays one of my favorite characters, Jessica on ‘True Blood’ is dating EJ Scott. In 2003 EJ was diagnosed with a rare hereditary degenerative eye disease called Choroideremia (CHM) that is causing him to go blind. Since he found out he has been trying to raise money and awareness for the Choroideremia Research Foundation.
Last year he ran the Chicago marathon blindfolded with a guide and next year he will be running 12 marathons in 12 states all blindfolded. His goal next year is to raise an average of at least $12,000 per marathon. Deborah and EJ have been able to get a very rare and one of a kind True Blood auction item signed by over 60 cast and staff members of the series. The auction ends on Oct 23rd on eBay so go check it out HERE! Check out the video below of EJ and the item up for auction.
If you would still like to donate to the cause please go to either www.curechm.org or www.ejcurechm.blogspot.com. Please help EJ out an add him at twitter HERE and facebook.com/12marathons2012 and like him on Facebook HERE!
