Fear of the unknown, and of being alone, are the worst of all fears, and, therefore, the biggest challenges in coping with progressive vision loss. Conquering those fears can open doors of opportunities never thought possible.
As this month’s International Low Vision Support Group presenter, Dan Roberts, introduces his childhood monster and talks about how it came back to scare him five decades later in the form of impending blindness. He also introduces people he has known who overcame their fear and became his role models. Among them was 7-year-old Brittany, who was born blind but did not let it stop her from making the most of her musical talent. Hearing one of her beautiful compositions is reason enough for “tuning in” to this session.
