He was the President of the Macular Vision Loss Support Society of Australia (1994 - 2018) and regularly championed the cause of CBS during his long term of presidency. Patrick brought his lived experience of CBS - as well as a strong sense of advocacy - to the directorship position. He was an active and committed board member until his passing last year.
