T-Base Communications Reaches Out to Bermuda Toddler with Sound



    OTTAWA, March 27 /CNW Telbec/ - When T-Base Communications heard of Zyare
Outerbridge's incurable condition, that could leave him blind and is currently
affecting his everyday activities, they didn't hesitate to reach out. Zyare
lives in Bermuda with his family and has Leber's Congenital Amaurosis,
commonly referred to as LCA, which is a gradual deterioration of his retina
cells.
    To help ensure that Zyare adapts to his new situation and his enjoyment
for learning continues, T-Base will be providing storybooks to Zyare in audio
format on a monthly basis for an entire year. "I can certainly relate as my
sight deteriorated over time, however, I was much older and able to cope with
my vision loss comprehensibly. I can only imagine how frightening it would be
for a three year old," said Sharlyn Ayotte, President and CEO of T-Base
Communications.
    Zyare's vision is already being affected as he has difficulty recognizing
some objects and is terrified of the dark. Zyare's prognosis is that he will
lose most of his vision in 10-15 years. "The motivation for T-Base was simple
compassion. I wanted to bring inspiration to Zyare and his family by
demonstrating that there are many successful blind individuals who contribute
fully and actively in society," adds Ayotte.
    "We are so incredibly grateful to T-Base and their generous offer to help
Zyare through this transition. It will not only mean a great deal to Zyare as
his condition worsens, but also to my family who truly appreciates the support
from as far reaching as Canada." said Zyare's mother.
