Bennett Enjoys Family Time in Disney

Bennett, a sweet young boy diagnosed with optic nerve hypoplasia, enjoyed a family trip to Disney. Bennett was born blind and is non-verbal; yet his parents knew this was the Dream for him because when he hears the voice of Mickey Mouse or a Disney princess, his reaction is “beyond priceless.”

Thank you from Bennett’s Family

“Bennett had such a good trip! He was all smiles and giggles. Thank you so much!Bennett’s mom, Kayla

Bennett’s Diagnosis

Bennett was born blind due to optic nerve hypoplasia, which is an under-development of the cells in the optic nerve.  This is caused by a problem with the development of the eyes in utero.
