Cataract is the world’s leading cause of blindness. Over 20 million people worldwide live with cataract, with four out of every five adults with cataract going needlessly blind. This is why Miracles Day is so important in helping to restore sight to those who can least afford it.

Robbo and Becci have traveled with CBM Australia to see cataract operations, meet patients and hear some incredible stories of lives transformed through CBM’s partners in Vietnam.
This Thursday is Miracles Day, an annual event where CBM works together with radio stations to make Miracles happen and restore sight. Just $32 can restore sight to someone living in poverty with cataract blindness. Last year, Miracles Day raised funds to provide over 25,000 of the world’s poorest men, women and children with the sight-saving surgery they needed. As you'll see from the videos (left) and hear on the air, Robbo and Becci are witnessing some life-changing surgeries; and learning how a simple 12-minute operation can restore not only sight but also hope for a new future.
Vision Radio had cause to pause recently and leave the mic open to a listener’s riveting testimony of conversion and the Lord’s bountiful mercy and grace in his life.

Just the right mix of great music, fun stuff and inspiration at breakfast!
Each weekday morning we fire up the studio with a whole lot of fun, some really interesting guests, useful 'real life' Biblical insight... plus positive music to get your day going in the right direction!
Robbo has worked for Vision Christian Media since Oct 2001 and for more than 10 of those years has been hosting Vision Radio's breakfast show. It's had a variety of names over the years (eg The Morning Stretch, The Journey, Rise & Shine) and a couple of different co-hosts, but through it all, Robbo just sticks around and doesn't look a day older than when he started! ;-)
Whether behind the microphone or at a picnic in the park, Robbo enjoys connecting with people - and if you're a Nth QLD Cowboys fan, you're sure to become a lifelong friend! He's active in his local church, enjoys the occasional run and has an interest in politics. Robbo is the husband of one wife and father of two growing boys, all of whom enjoy camping and bike riding together.
Becci is truly international... she was born in the UK, raised in New Zealand, and has also lived in Canada and now here in Australia. A Pinterest-mum she is not, but Becci is always willing to give things a crack, and is not too embarrassed by the occasional FAIL. One of her favourite moments was accidentally supergluing googley eyes and pipecleaners to the dining table while making Christmas gifts. Oops.
When she's not hanging out in the studio for Rise and Shine, Becci loves spending time with her hubby, daughter and friends... and having random ideas like "Hey, maybe I should give this triathlon a go?!"
