This Nov. 18, 2012 photo provided by Kent Fleming shows Elise and Blair Faucheaux of Youngsville, in Louisiana’s Cajun country, with their son Hunter, who has the genetic disease called Usher syndrome - the most common ailment among people who are both deaf and blind. Hunter hears because of cochlear implants, and therapy has enabled him to overcome balance problems and stand and walk normally. Hunter has normal vision, but the vision problem that is part of Usher syndrome, called retinitis pigmentosa, sometimes develops as late as adolescence. (AP Photo/Kent Fleming)
