The sounds of a waterfall, the fizz of a soda, the ticking of a clock, the vows of your child as they wed; most of us take these sounds for granted. But for millions, these are sounds unheard, joys unimagined.
For a variety of reasons, many among us have suffered a profound hearing loss. Once, they would have had no hope. But today, technology exists that can unlock the mysteries of sound, and make it possible for them to hear. This technology is changing lives across the globe, and across all age groups.
Bridge to Sound with a 'Bionic' Ear complied by Cynthia Farley, tells the stories of anguished parents trying to help their child; teenagers hearing for the first time; seniors hearing again. Bridge to Sound with a 'Bionic' Ear is like having a roomful of people telling you their hopes and fears, and how they came to make the life-changing choice to hear. It also presents extensive research documentation, lists resources for those seeking help with their hearing health decisions, and much more.
Just what is a cochlear implant, and how does it work? Does it bring the same results to all users? Who should consider an implant? What organizations offer support? Where can you learn more? Bridge to Sound with a 'Bionic 'Ear is packed with this information. It should be on the bookshelf of everyone with an interest in hearing loss and cochlear implants.
Bridge to Sound with a 'Bionic' Ear was compiled by Cynthia Farley, herself an implant user since 1995. She is also the founder of "Hear This Organization" a nonprofit entity dedicated to increasing public awareness of issues relating to hearing loss. A portion of all profits from sales of this book will be donated to nonprofits in the hearing health field. Cynthia resides in Minnetonka Beach Minnesota with her husband Doug and son Zachary.
