ABOUT USHER SYNDROME

Usher syndrome is the most common cause of deafblindness in the United States. It is a combination of Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and some level of hearing loss. There are about 10-15,000 people with Usher syndrome in the United States today. We are a 501(c)3 not for profit organization in search of funds to sustain the fight against Usher syndrome. Please help us make a difference by supporting us in our fundraising efforts for preventing, treating and curing Usher syndrome.
