As a special tribute to all of you who make the Ask Lipreading Mom column so special, I'd like you to join me for a celebration.
This Saturday, September 14, marks the one-year anniversary of my favorite project in the world, Show Me Your Ears.
What is this campaign? It is an awareness that ears---whether they can hear or not---are beautiful. I spent two years hiding my hearing aids behind long hair. Finally, I said ENOUGH! You can now often see me with a ponytail with my royal blue hearing aids in public view.
I'm proud to show off my ears. If you are, too, join me by sending your ear photo today. Learn more on the Show Me Your Ears page.
