Donor Appreciation
Phyllis Hersch

There are innumerable frustrations when dealing with hearing loss in a hearing world, but with the explosion of technology and scientific advances in this field, and with the superb advocacy and educational initiatives HLAA undertakes, the future looks bright indeed. I give to HLAA to show my appreciation for their important work and to ensure that people with hearing loss continue to have a voice.”

– Phyllis Hersh, HLAA Greater Baltimore Chapter member

Thank you to our donors for making it possible for our staff and volunteers to serve the millions of people with hearing loss. Whether you’ve made a single gift, give monthly through our Mission Circle, or contribute annually, we are continually inspired by your dedication.

Your generosity helps sustain our organization and invest in the important tools and expertise that are needed to reach, support and empower people with hearing loss. We are so grateful for your support.

“I first heard about cochlear implants when I attended an HLAA sponsored event in Pennsylvania where I met Dr. John Niparko, surgical pioneer in cochlear implantation. This meeting was life-changing for me. When I realized I was no longer benefitting from my hearing aids, I decided to proceed with a cochlear implant, with Dr. Niparko as my surgeon. As a Mission Circle member of HLAA, I can ensure that others will benefit from the information and resources that HLAA provides.”

“When I was a young mother diagnosed with progressive hearing loss, the fear and challenges felt insurmountable. But then I found HLAA, and it became my roadmap to living a fully engaged life. It’s for the people who so urgently need our community—and because I believe so strongly in HLAA’s vision—that I increased my annual donation. The need is growing exponentially, and so must HLAA.”

—Cheri Perazzoli, HLAA Board of Directors and HLAA Washington State Association President
