Six-year-old Logan and 4-year-old Zoe Galloway are budding hockey players. While it’s not uncommon for people to begin skating at a young age, what makes these two children unique is the fact that they are visually impaired. Unfortunately, both children are going blind from an extremely rare form of eye disease, Leber congenital amaurosis.
“If you take a piece of cardboard and you punch a bunch of holes in it, that’s how they can see,” explained the children’s mother, Allison Galloway. “The holes will get less and less over time.”
