Todd and I were so honored to receive the Foresight Award from the Usher Syndrome Coalition in 2017.
We are gratified by the recognition, mostly because it helps draw attention to the many people like us who are focused on funding research and treatment.
Since we started Hear See Hope in 2004, it has been a journey of learning and growing relationships with others working toward the same goals. Hear See Hope was a founding member of the Coalition, whose mission is to raise awareness and accelerate research into the most common genetic cause of deafblindness. It’s so rewarding to work together with other committed and compassionate people, including families, physicians, researchers, organizations, and funders to find a cure.
