Thank You from a Mother in South Dakota

By Jolene

Christina received her new hearing aids through Healthy Hearing on 20 September.

We received this wonderful note by letter:

My name is Jolene. I am writing to thank Phonak and Special Olympics Healthy Athletes. My daughter, Christina, received her hearing aids that were donated by Phonak through Special Olympics Healthy Hearing on Friday, Sept. 20. When the hearing aids were turned on, she became silent and didn’t even move. She was likely hearing things for the first time.

Christina has used her hearing aids for a little over two weeks now. She is always excited about putting her hearing aids on in the morning. Christina has seen many ear specialists over the years. I always thought that she had some hearing loss but was shocked to find out how severe her hearing loss was.

Thank you for providing the hearing aids for Christina. The audiologist said they were some of the best available on the market. Without your generous donation, Christina would not have had this opportunity to hear.

Thank you again.

Sincerely, Jolene
