Bobbi Bubier has never let her visual impairment keep her from doing whatever she puts her mind to.
At 19 years old, Bubier’s retinas bilaterally detached. Multiple surgeries on both eyes helped, but she was left without peripheral vision. At 28, a concussion suffered during a fall took her remaining vision. It was 1972 and this single mother of two children, ages 5 and 6, was determined that her kids not look at her handicap, but rather her ability. She knew it was “mission accomplished” when her now-grown son said to her, “Growing up we knew you were blind, but we never really looked at it that way. We never realized you were that blind.”
