Told at 29 that he would lose his sight, Dave made the decision that he would define his vision loss—it would not define him. This has meant living his life with purpose, discovering new passions, and even continuing to curl—a sport that he loves.

When he felt that Chatham-Kent could use additional programs to support the blind, he reached out to United Way. Through a United Way grant, he and a group of others began to run a peer support program to connect people to their community and advocate for those with vision loss.
