Below is the next “Scratch the Surface” EJ Podcast. EJ has as his guest today Elizabeth Lucas Smith.
Elizabeth and I met in San Francisco back in 2007. 10 years later we meet up (outside of San Fran) and continue a talk we started a decade ago.
We talk about the hereditary and degenerative eye disease – Choroideremia, a disease that hits both of our lives and families very hard. She is a carrier of it and I am going blind from it. Liz recently had twin girls who will likely be carriers of the gene and she recently had her son tested and was found to have Choroideremia.
We also discuss:
- being a carrier of the disease,
- being raised by a blind father,
- having blind uncles,
- her feelings of passing on the gene,
- we also talk about her love of her husband and how she struggled with postpartum depression,
- and so much more!!!
We were able to have a lot of laughs along the way as well.
