At 7 years old, Nathan Kindred is a bright, talkative little boy who loves his dog. Like a lot of kids his age, he has always had a fascination with going to Disney World. Nathan would like to see it since, as he puts it, he has never been before. His mother, Jacqueline Kindred, would like him to see it before he goes completely blind.
Nathan, who suffers from Bardet-Biedl syndrome, or BBS, will probably lose his sight, along with other organ functions by the time he is a teenager. BBS is a rare genetic disorder that affects the brain and can cause multiple physical problems. Loss of sight is just one of them.
