Skateboarding — With a White Cane

This takes guts — and patience.


We could all use a little inspiration these days.
That’s why I wanted to share an amazing story I ran across this week.
At 13, Dan Mancina was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, a rare genetic disease that leads to vision loss. He started losing his sight gradually throughout his teens, and by his 20s, after completely losing sight in his left eye, Dan had to give up driving.
He assumed he would also have to give up his main passion: skateboarding. But that wasn’t easy, and eventually he made the decision to try skating again.
In the video above, you can see the results. Talk about dedication — not to mention courage!

Now: what’s your excuse?
