Friday September 19th, Impact Fire Protection Ltd., our family and friends will be joining CNIB for a Light the Night fundraising walk in Springbank Park, in London. This is near to us at Impact Fire Protection as my son was diagnosed at 5 months with Leber's Congenital Amaurosis. He is blind, and will always be as there is no corrective surgeries or eye wear that will improve his sight. As he is only 11 months old, we do not know to what extent his blindness is but he does react to great contrast of colours and light. Knowing that he does have some sight is extremely encouraging and lifts our spirits. The difficult part is when you are holding your baby boy and he is unable to see you smile at him and smile back.
CNIB comes in every couple of weeks to work with him, and us, to help strive to the best of his abilities. He will be supported by CNIB his entire life, from learning how to read braille, walk with his white cane, and pick out his own clothes as a child. To learning how to navigate through a sighted world, cook, pour a glass of milk and many, many more things that we take for granted everyday.
