San Francisco, California
I went suddenly deaf in 1975 at age 4 of unexplained causes. I wore a hearing aid in my one "good" ear for just over 30 years, and then within the space of about a year year I lost all my remaining hearing. In November of 2007 I implanted my right ear and in August of 2008 I implanted my left ear. My speech comprehension scores have jumped from 8% before the implant to 98% after, so I...

Atlanta, Georgia
Nearly 18 years ago, I did not understand what sounds meant to me. Every morning for the first few weeks, when I was a rough little three-year old child, my mother had to sit on me in order to get the magnet on my head.

They took me to Stoke Mandeville hospital in Aylesbury where I got fitted with some bulky NHS supplied behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids. When I was...

Although my hearing loss doesn't define me, it has definitely affected me!  I grew up with a bilateral hearing loss that was discovered when I was 4 years old.  I wore a hearing aid and was mainstreamed in school.  It's never been determined what caused my hearing loss, but I suspect it's genetic. In 1993, I lost all the remaining hearing in my right ear (for unknown...

Our delightful daughter Li-Li was diagnosed with profound hearing loss shortly after we adopted her from China at 1 year old.
