Ann Morrison: A ‘Comic Vision’ of a Brighter Future

Ann Morrison’s journey with Fighting Blindness Canada (FBC) began when her five-year-old son Gavin was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, an inherited retinal disease. She and her husband attended an FBC conference, which sparked hope for a brighter future for their son.

They turned their hope into action. In 1999, Ann launched the first ever Comic Vision fundraiser with her friend Meg Soper. It was such a success that it turned into an annual FBC event, which raised more than $10M over the years. Ann helped light the way to a better future by bringing laughter to a community.

Comic Vision ran until 2023 and featured such Canadian comic geniuses as Steve Patterson and Rick Mercer, among others.

In 2003, Ann took her partnership with FBC a step further, and joined the FBC team where she held various roles in her 20-year tenure, retiring in 2023 as the Director of Philanthropy.
