    George started going blind at age 15 from a degenerative eye disease. George lost his central vision and started seeing things that weren"t there--eyes floating in the air, extraordinary colors, objects multiplied and reflected back. He triumphed over his blindness by setting the world record in the mile for blind runners, competing in the Olympics for the Disabled, and becoming a full time painter.
