It sometimes takes overcoming something terrifying to realize that fear should never hold us back.

Teresa Smith had talked about fixing her eyesight for years, but the simple idea of doctors operating on her eyes caused too much fear for her to move forward.

Unfortunately, in May of last year, Teresa Smith was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. She experienced true fear as she struggled with the deadly disease.

Thankfully, she survived the treatments and beat cancer.

I want the best of every day

Having looked death in the face, many of her other fears were put into perspective. She now says, “I want the best of every day; I want to be the best I could be. I have no fear and nothing is holding me back anymore”.

Teresa finally went to see Dr. Choi at InVision Ophthalmology to get her vision fixed. His prayer before surgery reaffirmed that she was making a good decision.

Upon waking up from surgery, Teresa Smith cried.

She said, “I wore glasses since my childhood… I can’t believe no more glasses and contacts for me”. Teresa read 20/15 less than 24 hours after the surgery.

Is fear keeping you from being the best you could be? What would you do if you no longer had fear?
