Zach's Journey: A story of boyhood, bravery and blindness
by Marc Ramirez
Rapidly and surely, Zach Thibodeaux is going blind — the result of a condition called cone-rod dystrophy, a degenerative disease that is destroying the cells of his retina and for which there is no cure. At the age of 8, he’s coping with questions that are hard to imagine: How do you prepare for a life of blindness? What would you want to see? What would you do?
In this short story, follow his inspiring journey as he savors life with the sight he has left, learns to navigate the world in a new way and feels his family and community rally around him.
