Blind Flushing Man Heads to D.C. for Accessibility Laws – The Good News
Jeffrey Crouch has overcome more in his short life than most of us will in our ENTIRE lives.
The Flushing resident and his twin brother were both born blind, but they haven't let that stop them from doing ANYTHING. Jeffrey was one of the very first people to attend an online school while blind, and he went on to pursue a career in psychology.
Unfortunately, he was then diagnosed with glaucoma. He had to have surgery to have his eyes removed and prosthetics installed.
Now, he's on his way to the Louisiana Center for the Blind to teach other blind people how to use a white cane and get around. But before that, he'll be going to Washington D.C. to present legislation for accessibility issues for the blind.
As if that wasn't enough, he's the president of the Genesee County chapter of the National Federation of the Blind of Michigan AND vice president of the Michigan Association of Blind Students.
I'll never complain that I can't do something ever again. Promise.
