Dominic has had hearing aids since he was 2 years old. His family realized that something was not right with his hearing when his older brother Anthony slammed a door right behind Dominic and Dominic didn't even flinch. When his parents took him to the doctor they were told 2 theories; one was since he was born premmaturely the medication used to keep him alive could have damaged his hearing. The other theory is he was just born this way.
The price of hearing aids with or without insurance is astronomical. At this moment, Dom only has one working hearing aid and I say "working" loosely. This affects his work life and his social life. At work he has a very hard time hearing customers. He sometimes has to ask people to repeat themselves a few times. This frustrates him and sometimes he has to end the conversation and get a co worker to help.
Dominic is more than grateful for what anyone can contribute to bettering his quailty of life. Even sharing this post would make his day.
Thank you all for your time!￼
