As I take a break from work, and sit by the water, I smile at the sound of the waves crashing against the marina, the sand and the boats. It's a beautiful sound!! Unfortunately, many cannot and will not be ever able to hear the sounds I hear. If it wasn't for the kindness of my audiologist I too would have trouble hearing those sounds. I'm currently wearing loaner hearing aids as I await the arrival of new ones that I will be getting courtesy of the monetary donations that my friends and family gave me. Many will not have that privilege. Today I implore you to sign my petition at https://t.co/dCKWC8XR3b and support me in bringing awareness and demanding hearing aid coverage from our insurance companies. There is no reason why a little five year old in Topeka or an elderly woman in Iowa should go through life without hearing because they can't afford hearing aids. This is not cool!!! I ask that you join me in standing up to our government and our insurance companies and letting them know that we believe hearing is just as important as seeing. Please sign here https://t.co/dCKWC8XR3b THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT :-)
