Christopher is like many other 13 year old boys. He enjoys being outside, playing basketball and trying new things. When he was two months old, Christopher’s mother noticed that Christopher’s eyes had a hard time focusing. They eventually found out that Christopher has a visual impairment with no cause and no cure.

Christopher hasn’t let this slow him down. One of his favorite things to do is play piano, which he learned to do by ear.

For the first time in his life, Christopher was able to see his mom. Watch the video below to see Christopher’s story:
