Give the Gift of Better Hearing: Nominations Now Open for “Hear for the Holidays” 2023

by | Nov 16, 2023 | Hear for the Holidays, Patient Resources

The holiday season has a unique way of gathering people together, sparking joy with its festive cheer and heartfelt traditions. Yet amidst the laughter and carols, there’s a silent struggle that often goes unnoticed—hearing loss.

Current data indicates that one in eight individuals are affected by this invisible challenge, which means this holiday, someone at your dinner table might be smiling on the outside while straining to follow along with the stories being shared.

These are the individuals who selflessly put others first or who have been set back by the financial hurdles of obtaining quality hearing care. As we approach the season of giving, Hearing & Balance Doctors are thrilled to announce the return of our cherished “Hear for the Holidays” giveaway—a heartwarming tradition where community and care converge.

Why We Do This

Ingrained in the fabric of our practice is a commitment to the communities of Utah and Nevada—a promise to serve not just as healthcare providers but as neighbors invested in each other’s well-being.

Our Hear for the Holidays initiative is more than a giveaway; it’s a manifestation of our core belief that everyone deserves the gift of clear communication and the joy it brings.

The Power of a Nomination

This year, we’re inviting you to nominate someone who embodies the spirit of the season—someone whose life could be transformed by the gift of hearing. Whether it’s a family member who has always been the pillar of strength or a community member whose contributions go beyond words, their story deserves to be heard.

By nominating someone, you’re not just giving them a chance to win a pair of premium prescription hearing aids and comprehensive hearing care; you’re acknowledging their story and the difference they make in the lives of others.

How to Nominate

To participate, visit our nomination page and fill out the form with as much detail as possible. It’s crucial that you share why your nominee stands out, how improved hearing could impact their life, and why they’re deserving of this special gift.

These details matter—they breathe life into your nomination and help us understand the profound effect this gift could have.

A Season to Remember

Nominations will be accepted until November 30, 2023. The chosen recipient will be announced shortly thereafter, at which point they will embark on a journey to better hearing with a comprehensive assessment and personalized fitting of their new hearing aids.

Imagine their holiday season, enriched by the clarity of sound and the connections it fosters.

Last Year’s Touching Moments

Reflecting on last year’s giveaway warms our hearts. Juanita and Sue Ray, our 2022 winners, experienced moments that resonated with all of us. Their stories, filled with emotion and gratitude, underscore the impact of what we do.

Juanita’s and Sue’s victories in last year’s Hear for the Holidays were not just wins for them but a testament to the profound impact of community support and the importance of hearing health.

Juanita’s experience was particularly moving. Nominated by her devoted husband, Francisco, her story highlighted the daily struggles that many with hearing loss face and the love that surrounds them. When she was presented with her custom-molded hearing aids, her reaction was one of pure astonishment and gratitude—a silent acknowledgment of the new world of sounds that awaited her.

Sue’s win, facilitated by her sister’s thoughtful nomination, underscored the close-knit ties that make our community unique. Her sister, a partner at Hearing & Balance Doctors, knew firsthand the life-changing benefits of quality hearing care.

The surprise and joy that lit up Sue’s face upon receiving her new hearing aids were a reflection of the clinic’s mission to enhance lives through improved hearing.

These moments, filled with genuine emotion and happiness, capture the essence of why we continue this generous tradition. Juanita’s and Sue’s stories are beacons of hope and motivation for us to keep serving and supporting the beautiful communities of Utah and Nevada.
