16 years ago, a man by the name of Gene was diagnosed with Stargardt disease – a condition that results in progressive vision loss. By the time he met and married his wife Joy, he was legally blind.
Shortly afterward, Joy was watching the Rachel Ray show and happened upon the episode where producers helped another victim of Stargardt disease using a piece of brilliant technology.
That episode piqued Joy’s interest and she decided to reach out to the show’s producers too see if they could help Gene.
She was in luck! The producers were willing to help – and boy did they ever!
As soon as Gene slipped on the equipment, he uttered a phrase that had the entire audience in tears.
