Robert's Miracle-Ear Foundation Story

Published on Jan, 15, 2021

Robert was getting frustrated that he could not easily communicate his family and friends, especially his wife. He found himself feeling alone and isolated. That is when Robert decided to reach out to Miracle-Ear for an evaluation in Wellsboro, PA for an evaluation.

Miracle-Ear Hearing Specialist Rik Foresman tested Robert and confirmed Robert needed hearing aids. 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, and Robert was approved and fitted with donated hearing aids as well as life-time aftercare. 

Robert used to feel isolated and alone, but now he looks forward to enjoying life everyday with his wife. 

Robert is incredibly happy with his new hearing aids.  He is excited to be able to hear his family and friends better and is looking forward to enjoying life everyday with his wife. Robert is grateful for the help Rik and the Miracle Ear Foundation has given him with the gift of sound.
