Jeaf Healey (1966 - 2008)

Blind rock and jazz musician Jeff Healey has died after a lifelong battle against cancer. Healey had battled cancer since age 1, when a rare form of retinal cancer known as Retinoblastoma claimed his eyesight. Due to his blindness, Healey taught himself to play guitar by laying the instrument across his lap. He was 41. Healey is survived by his children, Rachel and Derek, as well as his wife, Cristie, father (by adoption) and stepmother, Bud and Rose Healey, and sisters Laura and Linda. (Source: AP via Google)
