    When a parent(s) hears the words "progressive hearing loss", there is a lot of uncertainty and anxiety. What is a progressive hearing loss? What does that mean for my child? In the most basic terms, a progressive hearing loss is when a hearing loss (mild or otherwise) has been diagnosed and it becomes worse.

    That is what Priscilla felt when her son Andrew who is now 9, was diagnosed at age 5 with sensorineural hearing loss in both ears which occurs when there is damage to the inner ear (cochlea), or to the nerve pathways from the inner ear to the brain. Most of the time this condition can cannot be medically or surgically corrected, and is the most common type of permanent hearing loss. “Andrew and I cannot thank Variety enough for their gracious decision to support us through his hearing aids and moulds, and with the Roger Easy Pen. In more ways than you could ever know, it has been a tremendous blessing.” said Priscilla, Andrew’s mom.
