Four year old Gavin Robert Stevens has Leber Congenital Amaurosis. His case is so severe, ‘you can say Gavin is completely blind,’ writes his parents on their foundation website

In this precious video, Gavin walks down from the sidewalk curb to the street for the first time with a white cane. As he slowed inchs to the very edge of the curb, he asks his mom, “I can do it?” to which she enthusiastically replies, “You can do it baby, go ahead.”

It’s a truly touching scene that really gives life perspective.
