Adam Case has a rare eye disorder causing him to be legally blind but he isnt letting that affect his view on life.
I realized that I can do anything, become anything and achieve anything with the right accommodations. Challenges may come my way but I still have the resources to handle them, said the 17-year-old.
Case writes for his school newspaper at Mount Pearl senior high and has been labelled a Miracle child since his many surgeries to help his eyesight.
Case and nine other visually impaired individuals across the country recently returned from the Summer Computer Opportunities in Recreation and Education Youth Camp in Toronto.
A camp that helps visually impaired students become independent and deal with their vision loss.
On Thursday, Case was a special guest at the second annual Walter Gretzky CNIB Golf Classic Luncheon and gold tournament at the Bally Haly golf and curling club.
The golf tournament features over 120 golfers and raises funds for CNIB youth skills for life programs. This year the tournament raised about $25,000 for the CNIB foundation.
