Nicklaus's story
 
In December of 2008, our son Nicklaus, was born. He is our third son, a baby we had tried 3 years to conceive. Not long after birth, our beautiful boy was screened by the Pediatrix screeners at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital. After that first screen, it was apparent that our newborn son had a possible hearing loss. With the guidance and encouragement of the Pediatrix team, we immediately followed up with an ENT. After 2 ABR screens, it was obvious that Nicklaus was born with bilateral sensorineural, moderate-severe hearing loss. At the time we were quiet surprised and confused, as there is no known history of hearing impairments in our families.
 
 
 
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.
 
 
 
Thanksgiving is a unique holiday as its mostly about food (pumpkin pie, yum!) and not gifts, religion, and so on. Thanksgiving is also special as it provides us with an opportunity to thank everyone who has shown compassion and touched our lives through their generosity, be it family, friends, coworkers, or teammates.
 
 
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.
