In this Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2013 photo, Rep. Cyrus Habib, D-Kirkland, speaks during a committee hearing in Olympia, Wash. He was just 4-months-old when his parents received his cancer diagnosis: retinoblastoma, a rare form of cancer affecting the retina that typically strikes children. He lost sight in one eye when he was 2 and spent much of his childhood in painful medical procedures and grueling chemotherapy. Half-jokingly, Habib says that he imagines everyone still looks like Cyndi Lauper and Boy George - celebrities from the last time he was able to see. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
