Legally Blind Boy uses eSight to see Harlem Globetrotters #Toronto



Thanks to breakthrough technology from a Canadian-based company, eSight, a 13-year old legally blind boy from Ontario was able to actually see the Harlem Globetrotters, the top of the CN Tower, and the Raptors practice court during a day to remember in Toronto.
Ethan LaCroix, a student at W. Ross Macdonald School for the Blind in Brantford, ON, wore eSight - electronic glasses that let the legally blind actually see. Globetrotters stars Flight Time Lang and Scooter Christensen spent the day with Ethan, who learned new tricks, made an NBA 3-pointer, and received an invitation to sit on the Globetrotters’ bench at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga on Saturday, April 22.

Ethan’s mother Margaret LaCroix explained that her son was born with a rare eye disease called Leber’s Congenital Amaurosis.    Without the eSight glasses, his vision is 20/400 in one eye and 20/600 in the other.  Regular glasses do not correct his vision.  With eSight, his vision improves to a remarkable 20/30.
eSight is a technological breakthrough – electronic glasses that let the legally blind actually see. eSight is a unique wearable medical device that enhances the functional vision of a person who has low vision or is legally blind.
The Globetrotters’ Canadian tour brings games throughout Canada during the month of April, including two games at the Hershey Centre in Mississauga on Saturday, April 22, and one game at Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto on Sunday, April 23.  Tickets and the full schedule are available at www.HarlemGlobetrotters.ca.

Rest In Peace HUDDY COMBS SPEAKS ON DIPSET REUNION

RIP, HUDDY!

Harlem world rapper Huddy Combs (no relation to Diddy) died yesterday in a car accident. Apparently he was driving on the George Washington Bridge with a female and his car hit a tractor trailer truck. He was dead at the scene of the accident. Diddy tweeted about it too. From what I heard, Huddy was a best friend of Cam and Mase from back in the days. He was the dude that got Cam’ron to the hospital when he got shot in 2005. He was also a rapper in Mase’s short lived group Harlem World. RIP.

”My man here saved my life,” -Cam'ron said.
