Here is Chloe, an adorable and affectionate four-year-old girl. From the moment of her birth, it was seen, through hearing tests, that she had trouble hearing, later she had difficulties supporting her head and keeping her balance, which made her pediatrician suspect of possible disease, and she was referred to the genetics department where the results of the study showed: Usher syndrome type 1B, a devastating diagnosis for the entire family. Today Chloe has two cochlear implants that allow her to hear and speak, leading an almost everyday life until night comes, when her visual deficiency becomes noticeable due to Retinitis Pigmentosa, which threatens to leave her blind. We ask you to collaborate with this cause and join this initiative that seeks a cure for Chloe and all children who suffer from this disease.
