GRAND BAHAMA, BAHAMAS – A Grand Bahamian mother who lost her sight to a rare eye disease is pleading for help. 

Meet 26-year-old Bethany Davis, a single mother of two young boys, ages 5 and 3.

Davis has been wearing glasses since she was a child but at the age of 23 her vision became blurry. She was diagnosed with a genetic eye disease called retinitis pigmentosa and was told that she would be blind by the age of 25.

Davis still has some of her sight, but the condition has changed how she handles everyday duties.

And the most heartbreaking part of the situation for Davis is being a mother has become difficult as her children can now tell something is wrong.

And the thought that she may one day never see again haunts her.

Davis says she saw a specialist in the United States but was told that her condition is a “wait-and-see situation.”

Now unemployed…she is trying to raise money to travel to Cuba for treatment in June. The trip she says will cost some three thousand dollars and she’s asking for help.

And despite the odds, Davis still calls her life a blessing.
