Hi, My name is Heather. I live in Chicago IL and have 4 kids. My youngest is 7 and bilaterally implanted (MEDEL). My daughter is incredible! She dances, swims, sings on key, plays piano and has a fun loving cheerful spirit that makes people laugh and smile. See photo. We are always looking for ways to help her with education and life and hope to find more efficient ways to take care of her equipment and needs.
Also, I am on the board of FHSR (Foundation for Hearing and Speech Rehabilitation, organization that helps kids with deafness/hearing loss fully experience life through education, support & equipment). Volunteering for this organization has allowed me to meet, work with, learn from and help the most amazing people. I am looking forward to learning from the members of the forum and to help them out in any way I can.
