During my career I have had the opportunity to speak with many inspiring and unique individuals.
Among my favourite interviews was the chance to chat with Mary Walsh. Having grown up in a very political family, watching programs like Rick Mercer and This Hour Has 22 Minutes were part of the weekly routine. It was a chance to laugh at what makes us Canadian and see the human side of many of our leaders and those that covered them.
While doing a story for Optical Prism Magazine, Mary Walsh shared her journey with Macular Degeneration. A disease of the eye that slowly takes away sight. While many of us knew her are The Warrior Princess – few knew the battle she was actually facing and what a true warrior she is both on and off camera.
