In this penultimate episode of series one, Emma talks to Gareth Davies who is from Cardiff and currently works for the RNIB. Gareth was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) at the age of 20 and in recent years has lost a lot of his vision. They discuss Gareth's love of rugby and how finding a visually impaired rugby team was hugely important for him. They also discuss his journey in accepting his eyesight and how counselling really supported this and the power of asking for help.
