Marie-Louise Charron is an award recipient from the National Campaign for Better Hearing’s Give-back program. For every free hearing test taken with the campaign’s sponsors, $4.00 is donated towards the purchase of hearing aids for those who need them, but cannot afford them. Marie-Louise is a long-time user of hearing aids and needed an upgrade on her old hearing aids.
“Being a recipient of this award will make an overwhelming difference in my life in two ways,” says Marie-Louise. “First of all, it has eliminated the financial burden that would be needed to upgrade my current 12-year-old hearing aids. Secondly, with the newest hearing aid technology, a clearer understanding of the verbal world will greatly improve my social interactions.”
Marie Louise has had 30 years of known hearing loss and understands the importance of getting your hearing tested and getting your hearing treated.
“I am a long time user of hearing aids,” says Marie Louise. “I would not go a day without my hearing aids. They have given me the courage to be an active part of society. Many doors have opened and many opportunities have come since the first day I tried a pair of hearing aids. It’s an incredible introduction to more sound! If you’re not sure that you have a hearing problem, just get your hearing tested. It may be a whole new world for you too!”
