Andrew Patrick is searching for the light

 

UPDATE: money was raised and the family connected to the team in Detroit; housing was arranged and volunteers found to help them out with logistics on the field. Andrew was operated on and his vision restored to low, but functional levels (70% in one eye, 20% in the other).
