Sarah H. of Knoxville was born 12 weeks premature. Before she left the hospital she had serious challenges to overcome. But this tiny baby was also born with a strong spirit and a can-do attitude that have helped her through those and many additional challenges in the first 23 years of her life.
Sarah is a member of Club Vibes (http://www.club-vibes.org/) an organization created by John and Sue Buckley to assist blind and visually impaired young people in the Knoxville area to live independent and productive lives by identifying their unique capacities and developing their individual strengths.
