Two siblings from Arkansas are contending with a rare eye disorder that causes blindness. However, Caroline and Cole Carper will not let Congenital Amaurosis — a mutation that affects the retina of the eye and causes visual impairment early in life — hold them back in life. They both love to ski and swim.
"I mean, I think that blind people can do any sport," Cole said. "It just has to be adapted in a way that they can do it. I consider myself just a normal skier."
Please contact SDCB if you require assistance with vision loss. We offer several programs that can help.
