It's hard enough to imagine sinking a hole in one on the golf course if everything is going your way, but just try to imagine doing it if you can't see. David Meador has done just that. Meador, who now lives in Nashville, Tennessee, went on to earn degrees from Southern Illinois University Carbondale and Loyola University, climbed the corporate ladder in the insurance industry, raised a loving family, battled and beat cancer twice, and never lost his love of the game of golf. His story of perseverance, humor, and hope has inspired audiences around the world. WSIU-TV's Jak Tichenor talked with Meador when he was recently honored by his hometown's Greater Salem Area Foundation, which recognizes members of the community who have made significant contributions to the betterment of life in the Salem area.
