True Blood Star's Beau Is Blinded By Disease

TRUE BLOOD star DEBORAH ANN WOLL is helping her boyfriend raise money to research the rare disease that's slowly blinding him.
Edward 'E.J.' Scott suffers from Choroideremia (CHM), a hereditary condition that also affects his brother and grandfather.
The disease robs sufferers of their vision, and Scott, 33, is now reduced to walking around with the aid of a stick.
Woll, 24, says, "He is so proactive about preparing for this inevitability in the face of something so scary. I can only be awed by his strength and commitment."
The actress is determined to use her fame to help his plight and that of other CHM sufferers - and has enlisted a True Blood fansite to drum up support for a sponsored diet he is undergoing.
There is hope on the horizon, researchers claim they are just years away from clinical trials for a potential cure.
Woll meanwhile, is using her beau's strength to inspire her own medical battle with Celiacs disease - a severe intolerance to food types.
She said, "I honour E.J. by being equally as strong in my much less life-changing predicament with Celiacs."
