Richard's Miracle-Ear Foundation Story

Published on Jun, 23, 2020

Richard was getting frustrated that he could not hear or understand anyone he encountered.  Communication with his loved ones was becoming more and more difficult for Richard.  He was having to ask everyone to repeat themselves and have the television turned up loud to understand what was being said.  Growing more discouraged, Richard decided to reach out to Miracle-Ear in Butler, PA. 

Miracle-Ear Hearing Specialist Marleen Hoffmann tested Richard and confirmed the need for hearing aids, but the cost of hearing aids was out of his reach.  Marleen suggested that he apply for assistance from the Miracle-Ear Foundation, and he was approved and fitted with donated hearing aids as well as life-time aftercare.

Hearing aids have not only allowed Richard to communicate easily but he is also able to get back to a regular routine.

Richard is very happy with his new hearing aids. Receiving the hearing aids from the Miracle-Ear Foundation has been a blessing for him. Richard can communicate better with his friends and loved ones.  He is looking forward to getting back to a regular routine in his life.  Richard is so grateful for the help Marleen and the Miracle Ear Foundation has given him with the gift of sound.
