The HearStrong Foundation Launches Nationwide to Acknowledge the Accomplishments of Those with Hearing Loss
Date:1/21/2013

Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) January 21, 2013

Do you know someone who tackled hearing loss and accomplished a life goal? Don’t they deserve to be recognized? The HearStrong Foundation will shatter social stigmas and radically challenge the general perception of hearing loss in our society today by celebrating individuals who have not only faced hearing loss, but conquered it with a determined spirit, a focused mind and an unwavering heart.

Known as HearStrong Champions, these men, women and children are the cornerstone of the foundation, which is funded through the generosity of EarQ providers. People will nominate patients, friends, coworkers and family members who have refused to let hearing loss deter them from their goals to be named an official HearStrong Champion. Once selected by the foundation, champions will be celebrated in an official naming ceremony at their local provider’s office. By publicizing champions in local and national press, the foundation can empower the 80% of people with hearing loss who have yet to seek assistance and motivate them to take control of their hearing health.

“We want to show the highly active and vibrant men, women and children who overcome hearing loss every day,” said Ed Keller, president of The HearStrong Foundation.

“People need to know about the businesswoman who wears invisible hearing aids so she can discreetly hear her clients better, or the nine Olympic athletes who competed in the 2012 London games while wearing their athletically designed hearing devices, or the 4-year-old who loves to show off her pink hearing devices. HearStrong will break down stereotypes and show the humanity of hearing loss,” said Keller.

Roughly 36 million Americans suffer from hearing loss—and that number is on the rise. Recent studies have shown that one in five teenagers has hearing loss, as well as 60% of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. However, due to lack of education and negative connotations, many people choose to suffer in silence.
The HearStrong Foundation will change that view once and for all.
