RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Michael Fish is a devoted husband, father and computer technology teacher for the visually impaired. He’s described as a gifted, patient, engaging educator who loves to help.

His students are inspired by the fact that Mike has been blind since birth. They also admire his positive attitude in the face of numerous challenges, including a young daughter battling retinal cancer.

One of his students, Jim Whisnant, lost his sight two years ago after surgery to remove a brain tumor. Jim and his wife are eager to express their gratitude with our $300 token of appreciation.
