What emotions would you experience if you were to be married to someone you had never met? Even if you couldn’t see your family, you would still love them.
Exactly this is what Gene Purdy had to go through. He was born with a retinal condition that prevents him from seeing. He occasionally notices a few foggy areas, but that is all.
Gene had no idea how his family had looked all these years.
Gene’s wife once saw a person with the same illness on the Rachel Ray show. With the use of unique technology, she was granted the chance to see.
A cutting-edge eyeglasses firm gave this woman specialized electronic eyewear. Joy was shocked to learn that there was a cure for her illness.
She made the decision to submit an application for this program with the hope of giving their family the same fantastic chance. After getting a favorable reaction, her entire family traveled to Denver to shoot the episode.
On stage, Gene was unable to remain motionless. He was apprehensive and doubted that his fantasy would now come true.
The audience thought that when the glasses were presented to him, they did not function. But Gene said, in three words, “She’s beautiful,” as he turned to face his wife.
