Synopsis: Joseph Chan was born with two rather restrictive birth defects. One of them is a genetic eye disease known as retinitis pigmentosa (RP), which is progressive with age. The other is paroxysmal kinesigenic dyskinesia (PKD), an involuntary muscular spasm brought on by other sudden movements such as standing up from a sitting position; a condition that actually lessened after age forty. In The Way I See It, Mr. Chan talks candidly about the challenges of growing up with these two birth defects. Despite facing the fear and frustration of falling behind in school as a little child, and stigma for being different, this is a story of love, faith, and personal triumph over fate. The Way I See It is Joseph Chan's spiritual journey to discover his life's purpose and to share the hope and inspiration that he has found with those who might also benefit from it.

About the Author:

Joseph K. Chan, being legally blind, is now a volunteer who provides management services to non-profit organizations. He retired from the Association of Bay Area Governments after twenty-six years as CFO. Mr. Chan is a CPA and holds an MBA from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Now widowed, he has a daughter, a son, and three lovely grandchildren.

Book Description iUniverse. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 222 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 0.5in.About the Book Joseph Chan was born with two rather restrictive birth defects. One of them is a generic eye disease known as Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP), which is progressive with age. The second one is Paroxysmal Kinesigenic Dyskinesia (PKD), an involuntary muscular spasm brought on by other sudden movements such as standing up from a sitting position; a condition that actually lessens with age. In The Way I See It, Mr. Chan talks candidly about the challenges of growing up with both of these birth defects and his discovery that even in the face of such challenges, with Gods love and perseverance, there is hope. Growing up in a family where emotions were seldom expressed, he fought day in and day out to be normal because that was what his parents expected from him. His childhood was challenging, not only because he lagged behind his fellow students in learning skills, but also because he faced the stigma of being different. Ridiculed for being slow and clumsy, he developed low self-esteem. But the silver lining was that despite having such burdens stacked against him, these challenges taught him not only survival skills but also brought insights on important life issues like finding his true path in life. The Way I See It is Joseph Chans inspiring spiritual journey to discover his lifes purpose and to share the hope and inspiration that he has found with those who might also benefit from it.
