Each July, Texans witness the roar of cars at NASCAR races, cheering crowds at Astros games, and luscious rhythms at blues festivals.
Some of these events may not be possible this year. But if you’ve experienced loud sounds in the past, they may still affect your hearing today.
Someone who has first-hand knowledge of this is musician Huey Lewis, lead singer of Huey Lewis and the News.
In 2018, he was diagnosed with Meniere’s disease, which affects hundreds of thousands of Americans across the country.
This often produces acute vertigo symptoms, along with tinnitus and hearing loss. But after receiving the correct attention, Huey’s thinking of going back on the road.
“I’m hoping to recover my hearing so we can get the band back together and play live,” he said in a recent Texas Public Radio interview.
It may seem odd to view someone of Huey’s stature discussing his condition.
But he’s one of many celebrities, including Halle Berry, Barbra Streisand, Rob Lowe, and Robert Redford, who has opened up publicly about a hearing loss.
US toy manufacturer American Girl has also made waves by naming a doll that wears hearing aids their 2020 “Girl of the Year.”
Together, these actions are reducing obstacles for people who are worried about seeking help and treatment.
But they’re also showcasing the amazing achievements of those who, unknown to many, struggle with a hearing condition every day.
If you’ve taken steps to address a hearing problem, you can feel proud of your decisions. Now is a great time to encourage others to do the same.
We’re Counting on You!
It’s fantastic when a major brand or celebrity dispels common myths about hearing loss. But when someone in the community shares their story with a loved one, it’s even better.
This year, your actions are more important than ever as hearing loss is on the rise in America.
In the past, it’s been most felt among those who’ve lived long, vibrant lives. But increasingly, those in younger generations are most at risk.
