Yesterday was a very special day getting to meet Alfie (pictured), his brother William & Diana & Rob (Mum & Dad) to take Alfie for his first ski! ⛷⛄❄ Can you imagine the heartbreak at being told your newborn baby had an eye condition? Worse still that he wouldn't live a fulfilled life, would be bullied at school & never get a job because of his low vision... yep a Doctor actually told Diana & Rob this (isn't this just AWFUL! Makes me SO mad ). So this talented film producer & her hubby made it their mission to share their story, that there are no limits to little Alfie's life. I was so touched when Diana reached out to ask if I would share my story as an example of someone who 15 years after diagnosis has never let my low vision impede my dreams. Yesterday was so special because I got to show Alfie that firsthand & boy was he full of beans telling me to just go faster & faster! 💕 The only challenges this family are going to have are Diana & Rob being scared when Alfie goes for everything (perhaps like every time Mum saw me ski race 😂). Can't wait to share this beautiful piece when it's finished. Thanks to @mt_buller for supporting Diana's film. We had a wonderful time skiing! 📸 @acfoley @dianafisk #lowvision #blindness
