Blindness


— Gavin Morrison, Credit Processing Services, CIBC, Toronto 

“I was 5 years old when I was diagnosed with a degenerative eye disease. A year after my diagnosis, my mom started a fundraiser to support vision research and joined the Foundation Fighting Blindness. That was 20 years ago. 

Through my mom’s work at the foundation, I was inspired to take action and become a mentor for other young visually impaired people within my community. From organizing networking events, to speaking at fundraisers, I see firsthand the impact of building a support network. 

It’s about connection. It’s about hope. And, it’s about building a future together where everyone thrives.”
