I'm empowering people with hearing loss.
As many of you know, Kai lost his hearing as a baby as a result of Bacterial Meningitis. We were fortunate enough to get him cochlear implants when he turned a year old, and for the past 4 years he has been doing great! I’m thankful that we have access to so many great services and providers to assist us with his hearing loss. The HLAA Walk4Hearing help contribute to the support services that individuals and families like mine utilize to navigate the world of hearing loss.
Hearing Loss Association of America’s (HLAA) Walk4Hearing is a nationwide campaign that brings hope to people with hearing loss in 20 cities, joining them in their communities to raise awareness and show support. Teams of family and friends join with HLAA Chapters and nonprofit business partners to raise funds for local programs and promote hearing health.
HLAA is the leading organization representing the growing number of Americas with hearing loss providing them with education, advocacy and empowerment. HLAA is bringing attention to hearing loss as a growing public health crisis affecting one in seven Americans and an often-ignored part of overall health and wellness.
As a walker, I've joined with HLAA Chapters, hearing care professionals and nonprofit and business partners committed to helping every person with hearing loss thrive. Your support with a donation will help me bring empowerment to our community.
