Bradford and Bryan Manning are typical brothers – they poke fun at each other, drive each other crazy and oh yeah – create a t-shirt empire for the sake of funding research for degenerative retinal diseases so one day they can be cured of Stargardt disease – a disease that greatly diminishes central vision.  Listen how 2 Blind Brothers and 1 blind host Mark, muse about living with a visual impairment, competing in sports, dating, standardized tests to tricks of skirting an invisible disability by using personality and social cues.  From learning how to read braille at an early age to quitting their careers to design and produce t-shirts that are soft so consumers that are blind can easily identify by touch when shopping and everyone can enjoy one of life’s simple pleasures – a nice, well fitted comfortable t-shirt.


“My Difference Makes Me Stronger” Have host Mark Farrell speak at your company or organization to increase morale, productivity, confidence and more.  Mark also has riveting talks for students (K-12) and college on overcoming adversity, anti-bullying/anti-teasing, mental health, drugs/alcohol, celebrating differences, self-entitlement and more.  All of Mark’s talks are from his vast life experience.  Reviews, videos, booking info and more at:
