"It was very satisfying and gratifying to fit these individuals with hearing aids"

Hearing aid manufacturer, ReSound, provides hearing aids to Americans with limited financial resources via the Help America Hear charity.

ReSound, the technology leader in hearing aid solutions, is helping hearing impaired Americans hear again via the Help America Hear charity. ReSound donates hearing instruments and audiologists to mission trips throughout the United States to provide hearing aids to Americans that cannot afford to buy them.

ReSound has been partnering with the Foundation for Sight & Sound since 2009.

In June 2011, ReSound donated hearing aids, ear molds and a Consumer Outreach Audiologist to the Help America Hear mission in Pueblo, Colorado. Recipients were identified by area physicians, local groups and churches, and received their free hearing aids at the mission.

"I was proud to be a part of this mission trip," said Adriane Levy, Consumer Outreach Audiologist, ReSound. "The Foundation does really great work giving the gift of hearing to Americans that normally wouldn't be able to afford hearing aids."

Among the mission attendees was a 13 year old girl with moderate unilateral loss with normal hearing in the other ear. Her parents talked about hard it was for her to hear the teacher at school and how she would miss critical information. When the ReSound Live 7 BTE hearing aid was turned on her face lit up and she just kept saying "I can hear better."

There was also a young man with severe-profound congenital familial hearing loss who was wearing 15 year old analog mini BTE aids that were too weak and had yellowed ear molds. When he received his new hearing aids, his whole body relaxed; he sat back in his chair and smiled.

"It was very satisfying and gratifying to fit these individuals with hearing aids," said Levy. "Everyone has the right to hear better regardless of their financial resources."
