My hearing story.

I was born profoundly deaf in both ears with a greater loss in the left ear. I began to wear hearing aids at the age of three. I did pretty well with the “aids.” Yes, there were lots of challenges; however, I prevailed and I grew up in a “hearing world.” Six years ago, my life completely changed. I suffered “sudden instant deafness” in my left ear. I thought my world ended. Now, I was completely deaf in my left ear and I hardly had any hearing in my right ear. At that moment in time, I was truly a “DEAF person.” My life and work was in the “hearing world.” I was panicked and upset. Then, I realized I had nothing to lose in obtaining a cochlear implant. I was implanted with a left CI. The rehabilitation process was slow, I hung in there and finally success with the CI. It is truly an awesome device. I hear better with the CI! I loved it so much, I had the other ear implanted. Wow! It is wonderful to hear sound! I am very passionate about Cochlear Implants and other “hard of hearing” issues. 

I enjoying sharing my powerful, inspiring, and humorous message “Anything is Possible if you Believe” to others as a speaker. 

I also share my message as an author of “Sunny and Her Cochlear Implants.”  Sunny is an eight year old girl who shares her message of hope, acceptance, and a positive “can do it attititude.” 

My nephew Max.

Max is the greatest nephew in the world. He is a cool 13 year old kid. He loves dinosaurs, WII and swimming!

Max enjoys school, he makes very good grades,and enjoys playing with his school mates.

Max is also “hard of hearing.” He wears two hearing aids in both ears. He too has challenges but it does not stop Max from living a complete and wonderful life.
