Ray Hazel

Lighthouse first interviewed author and Lighthouse client, Ray Hazel, in the fall of 2020. Since that time, Ray has continued to work and train with Lighthouse Vision Loss Education Center. He has also been busy with speaking engagements, researching, and writing his latest novel. We recently sat down with Ray to catch up and to talk about vision loss, writing, and the positive impact Lighthouse has made on his life.
