Thanks for the article! I don't share this with many, but my ex-husband is blind from childhood diabetes. I can really relate to this story. What courage this woman has! It's a very inspiring story. Legally blind means one cannot make out the large E on the chart. It's great to hear such encouraging accounts.

Wow. Just reminds some of us that our lives are not as challenged.
