Blind Doctor
By Brenda B. Covert

1     Tim Cordes was just a baby when doctors told his parents that he had a rare disease. The disease would one day take away his sight. That happened when he became a teenager, and his vision began to fade away. Gone with his sight would be his chance to drive a car. You might think his dream of becoming a doctor would have died as well, but it didn't. Tim Cordes has accomplished a number of things since losing his sight. In December 2004, he graduated from medical school!
2     Cordes' graduation is the latest in a string of achievements. What else has this young man done since losing his sight? Consider the following:
3     Cordes graduated from college with a near-perfect grade point average. However, afterward he had a tough time getting accepted into medical school. Most schools didn't believe a blind student could pass the classes! How would a blind student be able to study? How would he "see" the models, charts, and drawings? How could he help a patient that he couldn't see? How would he find his way around?
