Life After Deaf
 
I'm actually fifth generation deaf on my mother's side - my maternal grandfather was also deaf, as was my maternal great-grandfather. I was born hearing, and I started to lose it at the age of 5. I moved to Ohio when I was 6. When I arrived at the local schools, they advised my mother to put me into the Ohio School for the Deaf - fortunately, my mother is also deaf, and she felt strongly that I should be mainstreamed. I used hearing aids and lip-reading all the way through high school, and became the first student in my school district to attend Johns Hopkins University as an undergraduate.
 
 
 
Meet Team Campbell. Jean, Mitchell, Trevor, Corey, and Chris. Jean suffered a life-changing, devastating hearing loss injury at last year's Boston Marathon bombing. On April 21, in honor of Jean, the Campbell family ran Boston, their first ever Marathon, and raised funds for HHF! Donate to the Campbell family fundraiser and help us make hearing loss and tinnitus things of the past.
 
 
 
I interviewed Marion Downs in 2007, shortly after her sassy 'senior advice' book, Shut Up and Live! (You Know How) was published. It was only my second assignment for Hearing Health magazine, and I knew little about hearing loss, hearing research, and hearing technology.
