This year during Volunteer Appreciation Month, we owe a huge thank you to our 3,000+ volunteers - near and far - for being so caring, passionate and enthusiastic. Your willingness to “pay it forward” and advocate for those with hearing loss is what sustains the Cochlear Family, and makes us all stronger. We wouldn’t be where we are today without each and every one of you! Check out our Volunteer Appreciation Month blog series on Hear & Now: http://bit.ly/2HYYo5r.

“I had never heard the noises made by pencils and paper when writing. When the door was shut, I could hear people talking down the hall. I was awestruck,” said Bonnie C., one of many recipients who discovered the Baha System and a new world of sound. What sounds did the Baha System help you discover?

Suellen B. was born hearing to hearing parents and was a talkative bilingual child. Unfortunately, she started to lose her hearing at age 8, forcing her to rely heavily on lip-reading for most of her life. After the most powerful hearing aids were no longer providing her benefit, Suellen had not even realized she had a forgotten sense. Find out what sounds Suellen was happily reminded of with a cochlear implant: https://bit.ly/2pF2xmi.
Talk to your health care provider to see if you are a candidate for Cochlear technology and to understand the associated risks and benefits. Individual results may vary: http://bit.ly/2fZtnkB.

“With my new CI, I was no longer isolated. I became more active again in the community; to the surprise of some of my acquaintances, I no longer sat there quietly at meetings but talked and joined in discussions.” Bruce S. had spent half his life watching his hearing deteriorate, but at 82-years-old, he decided to make a change.
He went from feeling isolated and alone to teaching others about cochlear implants in his community. For this Volunteer Appreciation Month, see how Bruce is spending his time in the community via American Cochlear Implant Alliance on page 9: https://bit.ly/2Fheqtb.
