Gene lives in Denver, Colorado with his wife, Joy, and 1-year-old son, Lincoln. Although Gene can see to some extent, he is legally blind as he has Stargardts Disease, an illness which prevents his eyes from being able to focus.
Joy said that one day she was watching the Rachel Ray Show when she saw something that left her amazed. Rachel Ray had brought a young woman with impaired vision on the show where the woman tried on eSight, a pair of high-tech goggles that allowed her to see!
“I literally began shaking and crying for the next hour or more at the thought of my husband being able to see my face for the first time, to see our son for the first time,” wrote Joy in an emotional letter to the show.
Rachel Ray saw her letter, and Joy’s wish came true. She and Gene were invited on to the show so that Gene could try out eSight… the moment he sees his wife and child for the first time is an emotional one.
eSight donated the $15,000 pair of glasses to Gene so he will forever be able to see all the beauty in his life.
