Christopher Warner has gotten good at reinventing himself. He went from fully sighted to being only able to see light and shadow literally over night.
Born with a condition called hydrocephalus or, 'water on the brain,' Christopher had a shunt implanted to drain fluid from around his brain when he was only three months old.
Since that time, he has undergone fourteen operations to change or repair the shunt, and during one of those operations in 2005, Christopher experienced a stroke that changed his life forever. The stroke damaged his occipital lobe, the area of the brain that processes eyesight.
It's been 15 years since that life changing surgery and Christopher has recovered some of his sight, but remains legally blind today. Since losing his eyesight, Christopher has changed careers, written and self-published two books, one of which has sold in five countries. He's become a popular speaker, and advocate for people with sight loss.. When he looks back on his left since 2005, Christopher will tell you he's had an amazing journey, and is thankful for the experiences the loss of his sight has brought him.
Christopher's motto is, "I'm on this planet for fun," and that's how he lives his life.
