Her son is suffering from blindness like her younger brother Eric. She said that growing up with her brother who is suffering from blindness has taught her more about life. She said to Iloveoldschoolmusic.com on August 2016,
“The way I grew up is just a little bit different than everybody else, because my brother was born blind. So my perception on the world and things is just a little bit different."
She even says that spending time with them has taught her to experience life on a different level.
"My compassion and my sensitivity are heightened because of my brother’s blindness…and spending a lot of time with him. And you know, teaching him things that I’ve learned…and then vice versa somewhat. Me spending time with him at his programs…like ‘The Braille Institute’…just different little things. So I got a chance to experience life on a different level. Patience in watching these people that volunteer to work with children that have some sort of impairment..”
Well, she sure learned more about life through her brother's struggle with blindness.
