Hi. My name is Allyson Roberts and I'm hearing impaired. Contrary to popular belief, hearing devices are not covered by most insurance companies. Additionally, the type of hearing loss I have requires a device that is programmable and these are not available through discount providers such as Costco or online warehouses. Believe me, I've done my research the past 4 months. As my daughter can attest, I cannot hear without the devices. Today I was fitted with devices that are less expensive than what I need and it's been a long day of frustration and tears. My dr's office has discounted the hearing aids as low as they are willing to go. So, I'm asking you for help. If each one of my friends on Facebook gives just $3 each, I will have the funds I need to hear. Thank you for reading my story. Please help if you are able. Blessings to everyone!
