Amit Patel: Kika & Me

Wednesday 30 June, 6.30pm

How one extraordinary guide dog changed my world

Amit Patel was working as a trauma doctor when a rare condition caused him to lose his sight within thirty-six hours. Totally dependent on others and terrified of stepping outside with a white cane after being assaulted, he hits rock bottom. 

Until along comes Kika, a guide dog in training, who not only gives Amit a renewed lease of life but a new best friend. Kika & Me is the moving, heart-warming and inspirational story of Amit’s sight-loss journey and how one guide dog changed his world. 

Guest interviewee Pauline Acott, Senior Practitioner for visual impairment at Enabled Living, will join Amit to share how she was able to support him at the start of his journey.
