Most of us take all the things we have for granted. We have eyes that see the beautiful world around us. We have legs that can run, walk and explore, hands to touch and feel… we are already TOO much just the way we are at the moment!
The bad thing about all the things we are blessed with is that we realize it way too late. For Gene Purdie, however, life is much different!
Gene suffers from a condition called Stargardt’s disease – this condition only allows Gene to see the outline of things in front of him.
He was never fortunate enough to have the chance to see his wife’s beautiful face, his son’s button nose and angel face and his parents glowing smiles!
Gene has only seen the outline of life, so to speak, until Rachael Ray invited him on her show for an incredibly special surprise.
Rachael presented Gene with a pair of eSight glasses (which allow the people with severe vision impairments to see the beautiful things they’ve missed their entire life) to try on.
When Gene put on the eSight glasses, a gigantic smile spread over his face and he immediately turned over to his wife!
This moment is something he’ll never forget – and Rachael Ray has another huge surprise up her sleeve for Gene.
