Fred's Miracle-Ear Foundation Story

Published on Mar, 11, 2021

Fred has struggled with hearing loss for several years. He has found it increasingly difficult to communicate with his wife and friends, which often leaves him feeling alone and isolated. Fred was always asking everyone to repeat things to him. Growing more frustrated, Fred decided to reach out to Miracle-Ear in Wellsboro, PA.

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

Fred Gift of Sound

Fred found it increasingly difficult to communicate with his loved ones, which left him feeling alone and isolated.

Fred is excited with his new hearing aids. He is looking forward to enjoying the ability to have basic conversation with everyone, especially his wife at home and being able to watch TV without having the volume so loud. Fred is so grateful for the help Rik and the Miracle-Ear Foundation has given him with the gift of sound.
