IMAGINE EVERY WOMAN IN YOUR FAMILY BEING TOLD THAT IT WAS LIKELY THEY WOULD LOSE THEIR SIGHT
That’s the terrible prospect that Lynn Gordon and her two sisters faced. When an inherited disease of the retina rendered her mum and her three siblings completely blind, the sisters must face the truth that they too may lose their sight. When their dad, the only sighted member of the family, is diagnosed with terminal cancer, the sisters knew their world would never be the same again. To add to the trauma their Mum is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s only weeks later. Totally devastated by these events, they could never have imagined how the turmoil and stress would lead to the ultimate destruction of their extended family. This is a story of tragedy, family tensions, and human resilience being stretched to breaking point, but it is also about the strength of a woman overcoming those difficulties and finding a way to hope in the face of overwhelming odds.
