"I lost my vision in 1996 to Shingles so I decided to face my biggest fear - heights. I figured since I couldn't see how high I was there was nothing holding me back. I went zip lining and it was the most exhilarating thing I have ever done. And the only reason I did it was because of my vision loss. I have always been an energetic busy person, but when I lost my sight I was anxious. My eye doctor suggested I reach out to BCABVI to see what supports and options they had for me. I joined a support group and I have enjoyed every second of it. I thought I knew everything about blindness but I found out I knew nothing. BCABVI taught me a lot about who I am and has given me the opportunity to learn and grow. The agency is a wonderful place with phenomenal staff."
