Transcript: Hi USH family! Danay Trest from Mississippi. I'm currently serving as a board member for the Usher Syndrome Coalition and I'm the ambassador for the state of Mississippi. I also serve on a couple of non-profit organizations at the state level, which are the Deafblind Community of Mississippi, and the Mississippi Hearing/Vision project.

If you know of anyone, or yourself, that needs some assistance or a sense of direction "Where do I go to from here ?" - or just need someone to talk to, please - by all means - feel free to reach out to me. I know what it's like feeling alone. I dealt with that for over 21 years until I finally said I can't handle this anymore by myself. I wish I could have been where I am today even 10 years ago, but nevertheless, always know you're not alone. We're here for you.

We love you. We're going to support you all the way. Thank you! Have a great day.
