Anne Sullivan was almost completely blind herself. When Helen was admitted to Radcliffe, the dean tried to make her change her mind because he did not think she could handle it. Anne spent 5 hours a day spelling the texts into Helen's hand so she could learn the information and prove him wrong. This strained her eyes even more. The doctor told Anne to stop or it would make her completely blind too. She did not listen and helped Helen graduate from Radcliffe, Cum Laude.
