Diagnosis of sight loss can be devastating, but how do you take such news when it's your child being diagnosed?
Jackie Mann is a terrific mum to seven-year-old Micah who was diagnosed with Norrie Disease, a rare genetic condition that causes sight loss from birth and can lead to progressive loss of hearing.
Speaking with RNIB Connect Radio’s Simon Pauley, Jackie explains how their life changed since the diagnosis and what they’re doing to ensure Micah has a happy and full life.
