HHF's Hearing Restoration Project was selected as an innovator/presenter at the 6th Annual Partnering for Cures conference, which took place on November 16-18 in New York City. Convened by FasterCures, the Washington, D.C.-based center of the Milken Institute, the conference brought together nearly 1,000 medical research leaders, investors and decision-makers to forge the collaborations needed to speed and improve outcomes-driven R&D. To see HHF's presentation at the event, please click here

Learning Grace: Our Daughter With Stickler Syndrome
 
As my wife tells it, our daughter's middle name came to her while she pregnant, concerned about the baby. A word popped into her head: grace. She felt that with this child a lot of grace was to be shown, either to her or by her. During the birth, the baby's heart rate slowed. The umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck. When she emerged, the cord was quickly unwrapped. Our daughter had facial features like those with Down syndrome, a cleft palate, and an unusually small chin. Questions swirled: What did she have? What were the physical and mental effects? Would she be all right?
 
 
 
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.
