Hey there,

July is usually the time for Texans to indulge in a range of outdoor events – whether it’s listening to blues performers at festivals or watching the Astros hit home runs at Minute Maid Park.

The calendar might be reduced this month. But if you’ve ever come away from an event with mild hearing loss, it’s essential to take it seriously.

Huey Lewis, the lead singer of Huey Lewis and the News, is one of those who found their past exposure to loud sounds suddenly impacting their hearing.

In 2018, he was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease, a condition that affects hundreds of thousands of people right across America.

While there’s no overall cure for this, Huey benefitted from a range of treatments. Today, he’s thinking about taking to the stage once again.

“I’m hoping to recover my hearing so we can get the band back together and play live,” he said in a recent Texas Public Radio interview.

You might be interested to hear that Huey isn’t the only celebrity who’s gone public with their condition.

Illustrious names like Halle Berry, Barbra Streisand, Rob Lowe, and Robert Redford have also come forward to discuss their hearing loss.

In addition, toy manufacturer American Girl has broken new ground by releasing a doll with hearing aids and naming it their “Girl of the Year 2020.”

It’s amazing when anyone shares details about their journey to better hearing. This is the best way to end the stigma and concerns that prevent others from seeking help.

If you’ve found the courage to address your hearing loss, you can be proud of your achievements. But now is a great time to assist others in taking the plunge.

Are You Ready to Share?

It’s fantastic when a well-known figure steps out and discusses a hearing loss.

But it’s just as important for those who’ve already received life-changing treatment to share their experiences with others in the community.

This is especially important now as hearing loss is on the rise in the US.

Surprisingly, it’s not just those who’ve lived rich, enjoyable lives that are having difficulties. Studies suggest there’s been a recent surge in younger folks with hearing loss.

Your words can be incredibly important to someone unsure about seeking help and support. A hearing test is the first step to a long-term solution.

If you or a loved one is concerned about a hearing loss, contact us, and the team will gladly provide you with further details.
