I've been working at Cleveland Sight Center for the past year and a half. During this time, I've learned so much about the blind and visually impaired community. I've learned that despite societal standards, disability never has to mean inability. I have seen people who are visually impaired do things I never thought possible. This community has inspired me to change my perconceived conceptions and open my eyes to what people can do when given the right tools and services to thrive.
The white cane is a powerful tool for someone who is blind or visually impaired. After extensive training, the white cane guides a person who is visually impaired so they can manouver various enviornments safely. My colleague, Alicia, calls it an extension of her hand.

Please join me in registering for White Cane Walk and walking with me on June 6th or donate to my team! Either way, you are making a tremendous impact on the blind and visually impaired community. Your donation and support illustrates that you believe, like me and Cleveland Sight Center, that people who are visually impaired can accomplish anything. Disability does not equal inability.
