Ted's Miracle-Ear Foundation Story

Published on Aug, 09, 2021

Ted, a local resident of Wellsboro, has struggled with hearing loss for several years. Ted found it becoming more and more difficult to communicate with friends and family, especially at his favorite restaurant. Ted was growing tired of always asking everyone to repeat things to him, so he decided to reach out to Miracle-Ear in Wellsboro, PA for an evaluation.

During Ted's appointment, Miracle-Ear Hearing Specialist Rik, confirmed the need for hearing aids. Ted is one of over 466 million individuals with hearing loss around the world, however, the cost of hearing aids was out of his reach. Rik suggested that Ted apply for assistance from the Miracle-Ear Foundation. Ted was approved and fitted with donated hearing aids as well as life-time aftercare.
