My story

[p]Two and a half years ago my Dad, Kel suffered a stroke which took 80% of his sight, his worst fear. Some dark times were ahead for Dad, but when things looked uncertain, along came Eric from Vista. Eric helped Dad adapt to his sight loss, taking him out to teach him new ways of living with a disability like blindness. On January 5th of this year our Dad passed away due to a catastrophic stroke. He has left a huge hole in our lives that we shall never fill. So to remember him and to acknowledge the amazing work done by Vista I will run the London Marathon to raise £3000 to help them continue the great work they are doing. Please give what you can, it all helps, Lots of love, Markie[/p]
