I want to thank you and your organization for what you have done for me. I feel so blessed because I now feel NORMAL in life by hearing more! It has made me feel a part of things around me. I can communicate freely with people. These hearing aids work so well – and I couldn’t have afforded them without you!! God bless you because you are doing such a service to people like me.
