Kelly, Julie and Liam Grunke
We are a military family of 3 from San Diego, Ca.
Liam is 4 years old and has LCA. He was diagnosed at 9 months old, and we found our gene mutation when he was 18 months old. He has usable vision and we are hoping it stays consistent for as long as possible since it is normally regressive. Because he is still young, we don't know what exactly the world looks like to him. He can see colors and shapes, but has trouble with depth perception. He is going to be learning print and Braille and has started his pre Braille learning.
Liam's favorite activity is RUNNING! He has so much energy and loves to run outside. He is so fast! We hope his vision never gets bad enough that he has to stop running. He likes to make people laugh with his impressions of different sounds, and loves anything that is loud. He has started piano lessons recently and has a knack for memorizing music and lyrics.
