Becky Peterson Andrews | Blind Beauty 1
“I walk into a stop sign, which forces me to take action around my failing vision. This literal sign required me to stop and reevaluate my current circumstances and make some changes in my life. “If I’d been waiting for a sign that I needed a cane, well, I’d just walked into one.”~Becky Peterson Andrews, (quote is an excerpt from chapter 7 of her book).
Becky is the author of the book, Look up, move forward: My journey of losing vision and finding resilience. In the book, she shares the story of her blinding retinal disease and how she is able to live a resilient lifestyle. Practicing what she preaches, Becky is an excellent role model who has run in the Boston Marathon several times. Dedicated to helping others become more resilient Becky hosts annual retreats for women who are blind or visually impaired.
A beautiful woman inside and out, as well as running Becky, leads a very active lifestyle including cycling, rock climbing, and hiking.
