Coping with disease and disability in the time of coronavirus

(CNN)Sassy Outwater-Wright has fought off cancer three times in the last 33 years, losing most of her eyesight to a rare form of the disease at the age of three.

And now, at age 37, she's fighting a fourth cancer -- this time in her brain.
As a result, Outwater-Wright is no stranger to navigating the byzantine corridors of the healthcare system, and she guides others who've lost their sight in her role as executive director of the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
    As someone who relies on touch to navigate the world, the potential threats to her existence have multiplied now that the novel coronavirus might be waiting on the next door knob or window sill.
